London Political Economy Network

The London Political Economy Network (LPEN) aims to foster cross-university exchange and networking between London-based political economy research centres. It provides a forum where researchers present ongoing research, discuss, build collaborations, and identify areas for future research. The network jointly organises annual meetings at the participating institutions on a rotating basis. Participating members can showcase their research and benefit from the feedback of an expert audience. Thereby, we aim to strengthen London’s political economy research community and foster scholarly collaboration.
