About this event

Please click here for details of the 2024 LSE - NYU Conference 


The LSE-NYU conference brings together political scientists and economists to discuss recent contributions, both theoretical and empirical, to the study of institutions, political behaviour and related social phenomena.

The conference is hosted by both LSE and NYU and is held every year either in London (even years) or on an NYU campus (odd years).  After a two-year break due to the pandemic, we are very happy to resume our meetings. The 11th annual conference will be held at LSE on Friday 10 and Saturday 11 June 2022.
