Methods and Advisers

The EUI is an exclusive (small) research institution, offering a high-quality Ph.D. programme in four disciplines (political philosophy and theory, political science, sociology, and international relations).

Faculty members are selected on substantive grounds, all operating at the methodological vanguard in their areas of specialization.

Altogether, the SPS department makes up for a cross-disciplinary environment with a strong commitment to:

  • Puzzle- or question-driven research
  • Methodological pluralism.

As a consequence of the small and selective substantive and makeup of the faculty, the SPS department does not have a professorial chair in methods, but each professor is specialized in a range of social science research methodologies.
