Centre for Institutions and Political Behaviour
The Centre for Institutions and Political Behaviour (CIPB) brings together scholars who share an interest in advancing our understanding of state and non-state organizations and political actors through systematic empirical research. Members of the group are concerned with the effect of institutions on political outcomes, as well as the question of what drives the individual choices of elites and citizens. Our research employs a wide variety of methodological approaches and draws on a vast scope of geographic expertise, ranging from the UK and Europe to North America, the Middle East, Sub-Saharan Africa and East Asia.
The objective of the CIPB is to advance and disseminate knowledge through external speaker events, research-development workshops, seminars, conferences, and PhD training sessions. The group provides an environment where academic staff, students, and practitioners can exchange research ideas, produce high quality research, and discuss ways in which research findings can be translated into practical policies.
We welcome our two new core members Drs Adrain Millican and Mona Morgan-Collins to the Centre! For more details see their profiles here.
The schedule of the North-East Research Development Workshop for the academic year 2017-18 is up -- updates on times, location and titles to follow. See here.
