The LSE UPR showcases the best in undergraduate research in politics at our annual conference. It provides an excellent opportunity to listen to in-depth analysis of undergraduate work, followed by comments by academic staff. The conference thus bridges the research gap between staff and students and providing a platform for undergraduates to present their research in a public forum.
Here is what LSE Director Dame Minouche Shafik had to say about our 2017 UPR Conference:
‘Doing your own research is not just training for being an academic but also preparation for high skilled jobs and citizenship in the modern world. This initiative is an important way for undergraduates at LSE to hone their research skills while tackling some of the most important political issues of our time.’
