LSE IDEAS hosts a wide and varied calendar of events, including public lectures, seminars, book launches and conferences. LSE IDEAS events are focused on and coordinated by our research programmes, but in addition the centre hosts media briefings and public or closed-door debates on contemporary strategic issues. Each year the Philippe Roman Chair gives four public lectures on issues of importance in history and international affairs.
All LSE IDEAS events are well attended; attendees should therefore show up early to be certain to get access to public lectures and seminars.
For any questions on IDEAS events please email us here.
