London School of Economics,
Dear Sir or Madam
Could you please kindly provide me with a list of the PhD(or MPhil) thesis( or dissertation) topics of current [registered] students and graduates of last 3 year academic years in following departments:
government, finance, geography, economics,sociology, international relations and statistics
With reference to your request for information under the Freedom of Information Act, please find below the School's response. I apologise for the late response and hope this has not inconvenienced you.
Graduates of all departments have a copy of their thesis put in the Library. This is available online here: http://etheses.lse.ac.uk/
Departments decide their own practice for publishing topics relating to current PhD student theses. I have indicated below what that practice is by department.
Economics: http://econ.lse.ac.uk/people/rstudents_a... - students but no research topics listed
Finance: http://www.lse.ac.uk/finance/research/Cu... - some research topics listed, not all Geography and Environment: http://www.lse.ac.uk/geographyAndEnviron... - details on research with some thesis topics listed

You can also contact the Information Commissioner's Office http://www.ico.gov.uk/, though they expect the internal review to be carried out before receiving a complaint directly.
