We have a vibrant research culture at the Psychology@LSE, with a great diversity of research themes which draw together around the main questions and debates of contemporary societal and cultural psychology. The research we do brings to the fore the role of the psychological in social, political, economic and cultural affairs.

We uncover social psychological aspects of phenomena as diverse as knowledge processes in organisations, organisational culture and transformation, health, social change and community development, risk and new technologies, multiculturalism and intercultural dialogue, beliefs, attitudes and social representations, psychoanalytic approaches to society, and evolutionary approaches to culture and cognition.

In this section you will find more information about the research groups that have grown out of the Psychology@LSE, the grants available for specific research, more about our international reach and also examples of our work including PhD papers and Psychology@LSE publications.

"The Department of Social Psychology at LSE is an important, internationally recognised home for the critical study of the issues faced by those of us living in multicultural contexts.

In particular, the DSP creates a space wherein dialogues about key issues such as those pertaining to racism, whiteness and the politics of subjectivity may take place, and it does so be supporting collegial relations not only between academics, but between students and community members alike. 

DSP thus contributes a great deal on an international level to on-going challenges to multiple forms of dominance and discrimination."
