About Kent

BRISMES and the University of Kent’s School of Politics and International Relations look forward to welcoming you to the 2021 Annual BRISMES Conference. While this year’s conference will be online, it will be hosted by the University of Kent, one of the UK’s leading universities and an institution with a global reputation for excellence.

Known as the UK’s European university, Kent also has specialist centres in Paris, Brussels, Athens, and Rome. The University is located just one-hour from the centre of London on the high-speed train.

The University campus itself is situated two miles outside of the charming cathedral city of Canterbury, a UNESCO World Heritage Site.  Just five miles from Canterbury is the seaside town of Whitstable which is famous for its oysters and every summer holds the Whitstable Oyster Festival.
