The London School of Economics and Political Science has enjoyed a long and rich relationship with Asia. Many of the School's finest students, at all levels, have come from the continent, bringing their unique experiences with them and enriching the intellectual and cultural life of LSE.
LSE has always sought not only to be a centre of academic excellence, but also to contribute our knowledge to wider society. To this end, the LSE Asia Forum brings together senior academics from the LSE with eminent figures from the worlds of government, policy and business to discuss key current issues relating to globalisation, with a particular emphasis on Asia.
LSE is delighted to announce that the 6th Asia Forum will take us to Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. The theme of the event will be "Building Asian futures: integration, welfare and growth?"
The strong line-up of speakers and panelists, from Malaysia and elsewhere in Asia and across the globe, will allow a global perspective to be developed. Our aim is to create a unique level of intellectual interaction and discussion at the most senior level. Topics will include: the shift of economic power to the East; cities and urbanisation; leveraging Asia's success; international and regional relations in Asia, and a session on finance.
Admission to the Asia Forum is by invitation only. Invited delegates will be asked to register online if they wish to attend. If you do not receive an invitation and would like to attend, please send us an email briefly stating your interest in the Forum. We will do our best to accommodate you, but please note that places are in high demand.
