Visiting Appointments

The Middle East Centre accepts applications for Visiting Appointments from individuals from outside LSE on a rolling basis. Fellowships may also be given to recognise or enable contributions to the MEC from those in academia, journalism, government service, in professional practice, or in other appropriate fields. Please note that the MEC receives a high number of applications and is only able to support a very small proportion of these.
