FT Business Future of Europe Lecture Series

The FT Business Future of Europe Public Lecture Series is the European Institute's penultimate forum for EU politics, acting as one of Europe's leading platforms for senior politicians, officials and academics from across the EU. The lectures are followed by lively questions from LSE students and staff, as well as from representatives from a broad spectrum of sectors including government, business, NGOs and the media.

European Institute students are strongly encouraged to attend these events, both for the valuable insights which they afford into current debates about EU policies and European values, and as an integral part of the 'LSE experience'.
