Six politics students have been commended for their efforts during their time as Junior Research Associates (JRA) in the politics departments. The JRA scheme allows 2nd year students to undertake research alongside academics.

They do that research in July and August between the start of their 3rd year and the end of their 2nd. In 2019 politics' students conducted cutting-edge research on issues as wide and diverse as corruption narratives in the German parliament and the role of emotions in Brexit debates.

Sam Gower, James Hamber, Tess Michaels, Calen Pile, Henrik Prieger and Johanna Schoenberg all presented their findings in a poster exhibition in Mandela Hall on Tuesday 22 October. Pro VC Education and Students, Kelly Coate, presented the students with their commendations.

Professor Coate stressed how important research was to the life-blood of a university like Sussex. On the one hand the aim is to address some of the world's most pressing challenges. On the other, high-quality research enriches the student experience by being directly factored in to UG teaching."
