Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane - SHSS Graduate Handbook


The Politics and International Studies Research Unit ( PISRU) is faculty-driven and is meant to create a hub in which teams of scholars from the disciplines of Politics, International Relations, Economics, History, Geography, Political Philosophy, Sociology, Anthropology and other disciplines can collaborate across disciplinary boundaries to shed new light on political developments and challenges, both at the international and the national levels. The objective is to avoid specific methodological and disciplinary limitations and transcend traditional academic fields, while adopting a critical perspective towards political developments around us.
