The Opposition Studies Network is a UK-based community of researchers with an interest in political opposition. It is a project created and run by the Centre for Opposition Studies, an independent research institution founded in 2010.
The network aims to bring together interdisciplinary academic research on the subject with the practical experience of those actually engaged in it. Whilst international opposition is also covered, the Network has a UK focus.
On this site you will find links to articles and resources on political opposition, divided into a number of different categories reflecting the many and varied facets of the topic. If you would like to get involved in our work, please apply to join.
Our new podcast was launched in July 2020 as part of celebrations of the 10th Anniversary of the Centre for Opposition Studies.
