The Graduate School on Political Cohesion (GSPC) is a cooperative research and PhD training group of Ruhr-University Bochum and TU Dortmund University and is funded by Mercator Research Center Ruhr.

Starting in April 2020, the research capacities of four professors and 10-12 PhD candidates are combined to further strengthen our understanding of Political Cohesion as a result of societal and international cooperation.

The GSPC is built on the solid foundation of three MA programs located at the participating faculties EELP, MAPP, SoWi-GTG. Doctoral candidates in the GSPC ultimately receive their PhD from the participating faculties themselves.
