Envisioned to serve as a hub for students from the South Asian region consisting of Afghanistan, Pakistan, India, Nepal, Bhutan, Sri Lanka and Myanmar as well as from the rest of the world who are interested in the South Asia region, the LSE SU South Asia Society aims to create a united front that cuts across different countries, cultures, traditions, conflicts and political differences, creating a diverse group of like-minded and dynamic individuals with the ultimate aim of contributing positively to the region in various forms.

The Society not only intends to bring experienced students from the South Asia region and beyond together to discuss, debate and ideate upon development issues that plague the region but would also encourage them to work together and leverage on their LSE experience to chalk out meaningful solutions for a region which faces challenges in various forms.

With our motto of “Empower. Initiate. Lead.” we aim to create a platform for future change-makers and provide them the opportunity to implement their ideas that have the potential to bring about change in the South Asia region.
