Developing Markets Society is founded on the goal of promoting dialogue amongst the students at LSE about the various issues being faced in developing economies. LSE is home to thousands of international students, many of whom come from countries which are still developing.

Such countries often face issues radically different from the developed world, however little is talked about them. Given the principles of inclusion and open discussion on all global matters, the LSE Developing Markets society aims to provide a platform where students can gain an international perspective on developing economic markets and further their understanding of the intricacies of these markets and the issues they face.

Through a focus on developing economies in particular, an area which presently lacks discourse at the LSE, the society hopes to enable students to apply what they learn and contribute to global economic development in the future.



Expand members’ knowledge of Developing Markets all over the world through events, and build their ability to critically analyse and compare these markets from an economic perspective.



Produce articles, newsletter and engaging content that allows interested members to apply what they learn through researching and writing about Developing Markets, and share their views with fellow students.
