Alumni Policy Weekend 2019

The theme of our 2019 Alumni Policy Weekend was Cold War Ends: Liberalism Triumphant? False Dawn? 

At the beginning of June, LSE IDEAS hosted our annual Alumni Policy Weekend for alumni of LSE IDEAS's Executive MSc in International Strategy and Diplomacy programme and friends to connect with fellow alumni, faculty and practitioners over a day of lively debate and discussions.
