The POLIS Journal

An occasional journal that showcases a selection of the best essays and papers written by graduating students of the School of Politics and International Studies.

POLIS Journal

At Leeds, we pride ourselves on research-led teaching. Our final year papers are an excellent example of this in practice.

These student papers showcase the breadth of research carried out in POLIS by our students and were deemed publishable to industry journals by our external examiners.


These issues would not have been possible without the excellent editorial work carried out by Marijan-Benedict Hubert, Dr Slawomir Raszewski and Dr Andrew Crines.

  • Marijan-Benedict Hubert and Dr Slawomir Raszewski co-edited Volumes 1 to 3. 
  • Dr Slawomir Raszewski edited Volumes 4 to 9.
  • Dr Andew Crines edited Volume 10.

Dr Neil Winn is the Editor-in-Chief of the POLIS Journal.

Funding for this project was provided by Dr Simon Lightfoot's University Teaching Fellowship.
