Centre on the Politics of Representation in Crisis (CPRC)

Part of Department of Government

Our work links representation and crisis across the developed and developing world.

Knowledge of politics in the developing world produces crucial insights for political representation in the West, especially for questions of representation during crises.


Our aims

  • investigate the role of political representation in the development of effective political institutions before, during and after crises, and understand how crises might upend these institutions.
  • understand political representation in times of crisis, especially for minorities, refugees and women.
  • determine how political representation can transform institutions and enhance capacity building them both at the national and the local levels.
