The Cold War Studies Project (CWSP) maintains LSE IDEAS as the leading centre in Europe for advanced study and research the Cold War. We focus on:

| the new history of the Cold War, which uses new primary sources from recently opened archives to challenge conventional understandings;

| the global Cold War in Europe and Third World, not just the US and USSR, and the continuing modern day impact of the Cold War.

Cold War Interests: 

The CWSP hosts the journal Cold War History. Also, we organise events and seminars on Cold War related themes, and we co-host the International Graduate Student Conference on Cold War history (with the George Washington University Cold War Group, Washington DC and the University of California at Santa Barbara) and the European Summer School on Cold War History. Furthermore, we seek to assist collaborative projects between the many members of LSE staff who work on Cold War related themes, and our network of associates at other universities and research centres.
