Welcome to LSEE - Research on South Eastern Europe!

LSEE - Research on South Eastern Europe is a research unit based at the European Institute of the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE). Bringing together and further developing the School's expertise on South Eastern Europe, LSEE provides a significant platform for high quality, independent research, across three broad streams of Social policy, regional policy and labour markets; European integration, macroeconomic policy and institutional reform; and International relations, minorities, security and state-building. Through its busy agenda of public events and academic meetings, LSEE aims at facilitating public dialogue and the dissemination of scientific knowledge on the region.

LSEE is closely affiliated to two other research units at the European Institute: the Hellenic Observatory & the Contemporary Turkish Studies Programme.

We are currently busy planning an exciting programme of events for the next academic year. LSEE wishes you a happy summer! Visit the Past Events page
