Centre for International Studies


The Centre for International Studies at LSE is home to an interdisciplinary community of scholars from around the globe undertaking innovative research with an international dimension.


The deadline to apply for a visiting appointment in the CIS 2016-17 has now passed. We will announce the deadline for the 2017-18 academic year in due course.


CIS Visiting Professor-in-Practice Lutfey Siddiqi was interviewed in Davos last week by Indian TV ET Now and Indonesian TV Jakarta Globe on the subject of economic outlook, risks and globalisation. He also spoke to Hub Culture on the theme of “Responsive & Responsible Leadership” accompanied by an article titled “Leadership in a Tumble Dryer” for the World Economic Forum.

The Forum also re-posted a write-up on the LSE event “Beyond Tolerance” with an embedded link to the official Davos session on Tolerance.


Congratulations to Dr Kirsten Ainley, who has been awarded funding from the ESRC for a new strategic network on justice, conflict and development. Hosted by the CIS, this network will focus on one of the main ways in which states and the international community now approach conflict resolution.
