World-class research relating to the former socialist countries of Central and Eastern Europe has a long history at University of Glasgow. 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.
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
As a testament of the truly multidisciplinary nature of the research agenda pursued in Central & East European Studies, CEES staff contributed to multiple returns for REF2021, including UofA20 (Social Work and Social Policy), where Professor Rebecca Kay authored an Impact Case Study, and UofA28 (History). The majority of CEES researchers, however, were returned to UofA19 (Politics & International Studies), playing a pivotal role in the truly joint submission prepared alongside colleagues in PIR and SIS. REF2021 marks another step in CEES’ enduring commitment to place a solid Language-Based Area Studies portfolio at the core of the research agenda of the School of Social & Political Sciences.
