British Government@LSE is a School-wide initiative, developed and led by the Government Department, to promote research, teaching and engagement about government, politics and policy in Britain. It builds on the long tradition of links between LSE, Westminster and Whitehall. Recent developments in British politics, including the decline of the traditional ‘two-party’ system, devolution to Scotland and Wales, constitutional reform, the Coalition government and the UK’s complex relationship with the EU strengthen the need for analysis and public engagement about results. BG@LSE will act as a focus for research and teaching. It also manages a programme of public lectures, seminars, symposia and visiting speaker programmes addressing scholars, civil and public servants and all students of British politics.
