Centres Institutes and Groups

The Department’s faculty members lead some of the top centres, institutes, and research groups in the university. Our collaborative organizations cover a broad range of subjects, from specific geopolitical areas (Canada-US Institute, Africa Institute, Centre for American Studies) to innovative and practical research concerns (Economic Policy Research Institute, Centre for Transitional Justice and Post-Conflict Reconstruction, Institute for Catastrophic Loss Reduction). We also pursue interdisciplinary research through three flourishing research groups, the Political Economy Research Group, the Political Behaviour Research Group, and the Moral, Political, and Legal Philosophy Research Group.
