The School of Politics and International Relations is associated with various research centres and affiliate institutes:
The Centre for the Study of the History of Political Thought
The Centre for the Study of the History of Political Thought at QMUL was established in 2007. The Centre aims to consider how new scholarship and interdisciplinary approaches have shaped our understanding and assessment of the history of political thought and the broader field of intellectual history.
The Centre for European Research
The Centre for European Research is an interdisciplinary forum for the promotion of research and teaching on Europe. Based in the School of Politics and International Relations, the Centre draws together expertise from across the different Schools within the College. The CER hosts the East European Politics journal and the EJPR (European Journal for Political Research) Political Data Yearbook.
The Mile End Institute
The Mile End Institute is a major new policy centre established at Queen Mary University of London, building on the foundations of our predecessor organisation, the Mile End Group.
The TheoryLAB explores the points of convergence and connection between different kinds of critical theory within, and beyond, the study of Politics.
