The Burning Issue Lectures

The Burning Issue is a ticketed series of three lectures being filmed for television over two nights in May. Intercut with location-filmed reports and offering the chance to take part in a live debate, these lectures are a novel and exciting departure
for LSE.

All are welcome to attend and food and drink will be served between the two lectures on the first night, with a post lecture networking reception taking place on the second night. All lectures will take place in the Sheikh Zayed Theatre in the New
Academic Building.

Tickets are available from 10am on Tuesday 3 May for the lectures on the evening of
12 May, and on Wednesday 4 May for the lectures on the evening of 13 May. Tickets will be available via each event weblisting, which can be found below.
