Each term at LSE, the Middle East Centre offers a series of lectures which are free and open to the public. It’s a great opportunity to come out and hear some of the world’s leading experts on the Middle East, ask questions and, we hope, network a little.

Here’s a sneak peek of the lectures coming this autumn. Most lectures run from 6.30 to 8pm. Final locations and times will be updated on our website in early September. Any questions? Email Dania Akkad at d.c.akkad@lse.ac.uk.
