About this event

The School of Social Sciences is delighted to announce the Doctoral Researcher Conference 2020. Last year the conference was very successful in showcasing the stimulating variety of research taking place across the school including Politics and International Relations, Sociology, Criminology and Psychology. By bringing together PhD students and members of staff, it facilitated a productive day of discussions. We are pleased to keep the conversation going this year!
