The Public Affairs Team helps take LSE research into the heart of political debates.
From advising on written and oral committee evidence, to condensing research into punchy briefings for Parliamentary debates, and setting up meetings with politicians, the Team offers the full range of political advice to LSE’s academics.

We work with our network across organisations from the CBI and Local Government Association, to think tanks like Policy Exchange and the Centre for Cities, to build influential alliances to increase understanding of research and push for change.
We also find opportunities to present research through political roundtable events, dinners and panels, connecting researchers with Parliamentarians, civil servants, and partner organisations to facilitate knowledge exchange and impact.
And we organise high-profile fringe events and meetings at annual party conferences - excellent opportunities to showcase new research alongside ministers, MPs and influential partners.
The Public Affairs Team at LSE are fantastic. They have a firm grasp of what it takes to get research into the public domain and have the know-how and connections to make it happen. This is a team who care about their work. It has been one of my best experiences working with colleagues at LSE.
