LSE students, alumni and academics are deeply engaged in understanding and experiencing the social, economic and political issues they choose to focus on, with the aim to facilitate betterment for society beyond the academy.
LSE uses social media to further facilitate such engagement, to reach and engage new and current audiences, to raise our profile globally, to highlight the work of our academics and create interest in the research, activities and life of the LSE community.

Some of LSE's most high profile blogs sit within the central Blogs team in the Communications Division.
British Politics and Policy (BPP)
British Politics and Policy is a multidisciplinary academic blog whose aim is to increase the public understanding of British politics and policy by providing accessible academic commentary and research.

LSE Business Review
LSE Business Review shares the best of modern social science ideas, theories and evidence with business decision-makers and professionals, and learns from them in turn. Our focus is topical, tackling the issues of today (and not of yesteryear) and our writing is direct and clear, designed for an audience with much else to get done.
European Politics and Policy (EUROPP)

LSE Impact Blog
The LSE Impact Blog is a hub for researchers, administrative staff, librarians, students, think tanks, government, and anyone else interested in maximising the impact of academic work in the social sciences and other disciplines. The blog aims to encourage debate, share best practice and keep the impact community up to date with news, events and the latest research.
LSE Review of Books
LSE Review of Books publishes daily reviews of academic books across the social sciences. The blog’s aim is to facilitate the sharing and exchange of knowledge between experts within and outside of the academy, and to open up academic research to increase its impact.
