“With a variety of events on offer, the Politics and International Relations Society here at Royal Holloway is one for everyone. In addition to academic events throughout the year, we offer a variety of other activities.
From global conferences in New York and London to more intimate simulations here at Royal Holloway, we introduce you to the art of diplomacy.
The Despatch Box offers you the chance to contribute further to political discussion and social events throughout the year should keep you adequately entertained during those essays!

There truly is something for everyone in this society and we are eager to enjoy the next year with you!”

Jack O’Neill, PIR Society President 2017-18

The Royal Holloway Politics & International Relations Society is among the most active and well-known student-led societies of the college, promoting debate and amicable exchange of ideas and action.
