About us

The LSESU International Development Society (InterDev) is a student-run society at the London School of Economics and Political Science.

Founded in 2012 by a group of passionate post-graduate students, InterDev has recently been relaunched and is the home of international development on campus.

InterDev aims to develop a deeper and more critical understanding of international development on campus through meaningful engagement with academics and professionals that inspires innovative global ideas.

Our society encourages its members and partners to work together to develop a platform for positive change, emanating from the heart of London. This interactive platform is fostered through engaging events, social mentoring and leadership transparency.


InterDev is open to both undergraduates and postgraduates from any academic background. We also offer opportunities for LSE alumni to get involved in our work. We are excited to announce that you can now buy associate membership from InterDev.

It is only £3. Buying membership gives you first hand access to all of our events and socials as well as any collaboration events. The funds will be used for enhancing the experience of the events as well as any logistical necessary formalities.

They will also be utilised for running charity campaigns throughout the year.

Events and Activities

We aim to foster a deeper and more critical understanding of international development amongst the LSE student body through

speaker events, interactive workshops, networking evenings, panel discussions, pub quizzes, the London Development Symposium and other creative social events we encourage our members to engage with professionals and academics in order to gain inspiration and spur positive change.

In the past we have organised 17 events. Partners included the International Monetary Fund, the UN World Food Programme, and the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development.

We are also keen on partnering with other LSESU societies for collaborative events and socials to engage the student community engaged as a whole.
