The Democracy Committee is at the heart of everything we do at LSESU to make student voices heard. As part of the Democracy Committee, you would be a key figure in ensuring that the SU’s democratic structures always remain open and accessible to LSE students, facilitating change in a fair but radical fashion!
What would I be responsible for?
- Ensure that LSESU functions in a democratic way
Facilitate and lead Student Town Halls and Student Panels
Analyse and assess the democratic foundations of any Policy Proposals put forward by other students
Oversee election complaints and rulings
Decide the dates, rules, and regulation for all elections and referenda
Assist with promoting elections, Student Panels and Town Hall
Each Democracy Committee member will be paid an honorarium of £700 for their work in the 2023/24 academic year. You cannot hold another elected position whilst acting as a member of Democracy Committee.
