About Us

We are the oldest student society at the London School of Economics (LSE), founded in 1923, predating the creation of the International Relations Department. The Grimshaw Club originated as a small discussion circle of friends debating foreign affairs, among them was our founding member, Harold Atheling Grimshaw.


Our core purpose is to facilitate critical discussions and open debates on issues of international affairs and on International Relations as a disciplineToday, we aspire to educate and train the next generation of diplomats, academics and leaders across different fields to be engaged global citizens.

Below, we have collected instances in which Grimshaw was involved first-hand in international affairs. We are proud to have been a voice for active student diplomacy on and off the LSE campus, with initiatives such as our delegations abroad, starting with a trip to the Soviet Union in 1988. We also helped found the Millenium Journal, which today is one of the UK's premier International Relations publications.


We look forward to seeing you at our events!
