David Wilkinson studies long-term and large-scale phenomena in world politics, including empires and systems of independent states. His research explores the fluctuations in the power structures of civilizations and world systems on very long time scales, while also touching on contemporary issues of multipolarity, unipolarity and hegemony. Professor Wilkinson serves as an editor for the Journal of World-Systems Research and the Comparative Civilizations Review.
