The DDMI is pleased to announce the release of the 3rd paper in the Africa Series of The Davies Papers. The paper is written by Daniel E.

On 22 March 2014, the E.H. Carr Student Conference was held for the second time in the Main Hall of the International Politics Department at Aberystwyth University. The conference is student-organised and led. This year’s topic, ‘The Arab-Israeli Conflict’ and the event itself attracted a large number of attendees.

Reorganisation of the DDMI Archives uncovered some long-lost publications from when the Institute was still independently based on Chatwick Street in central London. What was found is the entire run of the DDMI 'Occasional Papers' Series, Nos. 1-12. The author, titles, and other details of these papers have been added to the 'Past Publications' page of the DDMI website.
