Asia Forum 2006 - Challenging Globalisation: reform, governance and society

Delhi, India

LSE's Asia Forum events were held between 2004-2014 and were an important and very public part of the School's strategy to enhance its long standing relationship with the rapidly developing Asian region. LSE has historically attracted many very talented students and staff from all major Asian countries. The School has a large and distinguished group of alumni in the region and has been active in building partnerships with business and governments for many years.

The LSE Asia Forum bought together LSE's key partners in the region. The Forum provided an opportunity for analysis of different perspectives on the economic, social, political and cultural contributions Asia is making to global development.

The Third LSE Asia Forum took place in New Delhi on 6-7 December 2006 with the theme 'Challenging Globalisation: reform, governance and society'.
