Keeping the LSE spirit alive in Germany since 1984
The German Friends of LSE association (officially "Verein der Freunde der London School of Economics and Political Science e.V.") was founded in 1984 on an intiative led by then German-British LSE director Lord Ralf Dahrendorf (* 1 May 1929; † 17 June 2009). The German Friends of LSE are the offficial LSE alumni association in Germany, where approximately 4000 LSE alumni are based, of which c.400 are paid-up members.
We aim to keep the contact alive between alumni of the London School of Economics as well as to German students currently at LSE by regular lectures, academic and cultural events. We also promote the live long learning and networking.
Most of our activities are organized by the five regional groups located in Berline, Hamburg, Frankfurt, Munich and the Rhine-Ruhr area. Each regional group is lead by one or two regional coordinators, who regularly organize events and are also the first points of contact for members and people interested in our activites in the respective region. We are also regularly meeting with other alumni associations (both non-LSE and LSE) and organize an annual meeting including our annual general meeting.
