HELLENIC OBSERVATORY
20 Year Anniversary

The Hellenic Observatory, located in the LSE’s European Institute, celebrates its 20th anniversary in 2016. To commemorate this important milestone, we have produced a special video which showcases the Observatory’s achievements and activities over the last 20 years. Read more at the LSE History blog.

1996-2016 HO VIDEO

In the mid-1990s, a campaign was launched to establish a chair on Greece that was neither concerned with the ancient or classical past, nor the arts and humanities. The LSE would champion the study of contemporary Greek society, politics and economics and it established the ‘Eleftherios Venizelos Chair in Contemporary Greek Studies’. 20 Years later the  Hellenic Observatory is now one of the largest ‘Departmental Research Units’ (DRUs) in the School. We can be very proud of this achievement and can justifiably claim to be the premier international location for the study  teaching and research of contemporary Greek politics, economy and society.

To celebrate this important milestone we are hosting a series of special events in the UK, Greece and Cyprus.
