These include urban sustainability & climate change, new security uncertainties & risks, the changing nature of war, age & ageing, the ethics of biomedical innovation, scientific literacy & cultural inclusion, social cohesion in multi-faith societies, inequalities in health & education, public service reform, and the future of the professions.

Our excellence is consistently recognised in national and international league tables and research awards, and in the appointment of staff to influential positions within their wider international scholarly communities, such as editors of some of the major social science journals and members of Research Council review panels.

As part of our longstanding commitment to influential, policy-relevant scholarship, the Faculty maintains close and productive links with key national and international policy, practitioner and activist communities. The Faculty's London-based departments are on the Waterloo and Strand campuses of the College, both of which are in the heart of London with easy access to the policy community and the cultural and intellectual heart of the city. The Faculty's Defence Studies Department is housed within the UK Defence Academy at Shrivenham.
