We excel at innovative, interdisciplinary research in language-based area studies. Our research offers insight into issues of global relevance through a strong regional focus.

In the 2014 REF assessment of Research Excellence we were ranked 1st in Scotland for Area Studies, with 75% of outputs and 80% of impact assessed to be internationally excellent or world leading.

Our research groups form a focus for shared activities and support collaborative engagements with stakeholders and wider communities relating to Statehood, Nationhood and Identity; Migration and Mobility; Processes and Practices of Policy-Making
