At the Department of Global Political Studies or GPS, we offer programmes and courses that help you make sense of the world. Our academics and research focus on today's burning political issues and their implications for power, security, justice and development. The department is characterised by globalisation and internationalisation, with staff and students originating from many different countries. This diversity contributes to interesting discussions in the seminar rooms and lecture halls where topics such as security, justice, development and the consequences of global processes for power relations are addressed and analysed.
