The interdepartmental Europe@LSE research seminar is jointly organised by the Government Department, the International Relations Department and the European Institute. We intend to provide a School-wide forum for research on Europe, beyond the borders of the European Union and in all disciplines. It is open to the academic public but we hope in particular that LSE staff and doctoral students doing research in relevant areas become regular attendants so as to create a scholarly community. Seminars take place once a month, typically followed by coffee or lunch with the speaker.
