Welcome to the Hellenic Observatory (HO), part of the European Institute at the LSE. Established in 1996, it is internationally recognised as one of the premier research centres on contemporary Greece and Cyprus. In 2016 the HO is celebrating its 20 Year Anniversary with a range of special events, details of which can be found on our dedicated Anniversary page.

Read more about the HO

In May 2016 the Hellenic Observatory held three very successful events in Cyprus and Greece in commemoration of its 20-year anniversary. You can find information, photographs and videos for each of these special events in their dedicated event page.
