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.

South East Europe at LSE| is the research unit’s widely read blog.

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



The Balkan State Tradition and the Challenges for Europe|

Professor Kevin Featherstone, LSEE Chair, gave a keynote speech in occasion of the 10th anniversary of the South-East European Research Centre (SEERC) at the University of Sheffield.
