Fireside Chats; Regular Socials; Prestigious conferences; PPE Dinners; Constant opportunity.

LSE PPE Society is one of the most active event-driven societies at LSE that strives to provide a multitude of opportunities for our diverse set of members. We're multi-faceted in our ability to provide social opportunities alongside more prestigious, business-focused events. We always kick off the year with our Welcome Drinks followed by the annual Christmas Dinner. These events are accompanied by the informal, cosy yet intriguing bi-weekly Fireside Chat series with academics. We tackle a number of trending topics such as Censorship, Bathroom Rights and Politics in Afghanistan in a relaxed style of debate coupled with an expert academic that will present their research to kickstart the debate on said topics.

One of our more corporate headline events is the annual PPE Symposium where we host a series of panels centred around a topic interlinking the disciplines. These events have had notable speakers such as Vince Cable (Leader of the Liberal Democrat Party) and Marco Buti (Director-General for Economic and Financial Affairs at the European Commission) in the past. 

Further, we provide a number of opportunities for personal development for our subscribers in the form of insight days, internships and the ability to attend various symposiums external to the LSE where members can have their papers published or publicised.

This is just a brief overview of what we offer; should you decide to join our society I can assure you that you will not be disappointed!
