LSE Works

LSE Works was launched In 2011 as a new series of public events, to highlight in an accessible manner some of the main insights and achievements of LSE’s research centres.

Held every two years, a successful second series of LSE Works was held in 2013 and continued with a third series in 2015. In 2017 LSE is delighted to continue the success of LSE Works with a fourth series of public lectures that will showcase some of the latest research by LSE's academic departments and research centres.

In each session, LSE academics will present key research findings, demonstrating where appropriate the implications of their studies for public policy. A list of all the LSE Works lectures can be viewed below.

All events will take place from 6.30-8pm in the Hong Kong Theatre, Clement House (unless otherwise stated) and are free and open to all with no ticket required. Entry is on a first come, first served basis. For more information, email events@lse.ac.uk
