Research Amidst Volatility
On Wednesday the 23rd March 2022, the LSEUPR will host its 6th annual Conference.
This year’s theme is “Research Amidst Volatility”. The theme of this year’s conference is motivated by the tumultuous past year with the continued COVID-19 pandemic, supply-chain issues, emerging social dilemmas, and increasing societal unrest. On all fronts the past year has demonstrated the volatility rife among many countries, politically, economically, and socially.
Amidst this volatility, research has continued and provided more opportunities to analyse socio-political phenomenon. This year’s conference will see students from around the world showcasing the highest quality undergraduate-led research. Despite a difficult year for students globally, undergraduate-led research is thriving, and we are proud to give their work a platform.
You can expect to see undergraduates from universities across the world including the Americas, Asia, and Europe. There will be a total of 6 panels with 18 high quality presentations on new and original research. Panels include Energy and the Environment, Race and Populism, International Relations, and Electoral Politics.
The event will be hosted virtually to remain as accessible as possible to undergraduates. Registrations can be booked through Zoom. Tickets and registrations are completely free. We look forward to seeing you there to support high quality undergraduate-led research. Register here.
