The Institute of Governance at the University of Edinburgh is a centre of research expertise on multi-level politics and territorial identity. The Institute is based within the School of Social and Political Science, and has strong links with the University's Public Policy Network and the Europa Institute.
The Institute's research reflects the University's unparalleled expertise in these areas. Our research activity spans four key areas - nationalism and identity; territorial politics; public policy; and elections, public opinion and parties - and our staff and associates are engaged in a wide-range of research projects and networks in these fields.
We are firmly committed to informing wider public, policy and political debate. We have a strong track record of liaising and working with the Scottish Government, the Scottish Parliament, MSPs and parliamentary staff, Scottish and UK civil servants, business, the media and others.
Our flagship parliamentary internship programme strengthens our links with the Scottish Parliament. Created with the foundation of the parliament in 1999, it offers undergraduates an opportunity to study at the University before serving as an intern to a Member of the Scottish Parliament in a semester-length programme.
Details of all our activities can be found on these webpages.
