IBEI Research Clusters
IBEI has recently reorganized its research activities by forming cross-cutting and interdisciplinary research clusters. Each cluster brings together IBEI faculty members, affiliated professors, visiting scholars and doctoral students who share expertise on a common theme and provides them with a platform to discuss their work, exchange views, and start joint research initiatives. Cluster activities include, but are not limited to, work-in-progress meetings, retreats, workshops, training sessions and networking events with other research groups and centers.
The five clusters are:
- Globalization and Public Policy. This research cluster focuses on the way globalization influences, and is influenced by, the capacity of different actors to defend and promote their economic and political interests. Read more
- Norms and Rules in International Politics. This cluster brings together members from a variety of theoretical and methodological perspectives studying the role of rules and norms in maintaining international order, as well as the extent to which formal and informal institutional actors contest them.

- Security, Conflict and Peace. This research cluster looks broadly at the drivers, consequences and politics of conflict and political violence, along with strategies that can be taken to prevent or deal with the outcomes. Read more
- States, Diversity and Collective Identities. Bridging the often compartmentalized scholarship on ethnicity, nationalism, migration and social class, this research cluster focuses on the role of the state, supranational institutions and civil society actors in the construction and mobilization of collective identities.
