The aim of the Territorial Politics Specialist Group is to focus on a key aspect of contemporary state change, namely the significance of the territorial dimension to politics. It features research on the UK as well as on a comparative basis across Europe and North America.

To find out more, please contact the group convenors.


The PSA’s network of 60 Specialist Groups offers a research focus for all members and covers a vast range of specialities within the discipline. SGs provide an opportunity for groups of academics who share a common interest in a particular area of the discipline to organise meetings, coordinate communications, and as outlets for research – as well as giving PSA members opportunities for developing their academic impact and professional development.”


Convenors can view the SG Handbook here.
