Institutions, Politics, Geography

Human geography as practised at LSE is a social science, whose mission is to understand how human individual and collective action is influenced by geography, and in turn how such action generates geographical outcomes.   Institutional and political processes in geographical space, and that create geographies, are a central strength of our research, as reflected in a wide array of empirical and theoretical projects.
