More Information|



The Institute of Public Affairs is one of the world's leading centres of public policy. We aim to debate and address some of the major issues of our time, whether international or national, through our established teaching programmes, our research and our highly innovative public-engagement initiatives.

We believe that our successes speak for themselves.


Our teaching programme brings some 100 first-year and 100 second-year MPA students| and 40 Executive EMPA students join us every year from around the world to engage in the intellectually vibrant atmosphere of LSE. 


On research the Institute is developing a major series on the role of women in public life|, with many more interesting projects already lined up.


On engagement, we are drawing on the best at LSE to push new boundaries. The IPA runs imaginative event-series such as Constitution UK| and Imagining One Nation Britain|.
