About the IISL’s Research


IISL research (like a wiki) is a free resource written collaboratively by the global community of its users.

The IISL website has, in a short span of time, received well over 100,000 webpage views

from over 2,700 cities in more than 145 countries around the world.


The aim of IISL research is to build relevant and rigorous social science theory in order to obtain scientific truth for the benefit of society based on reliable data of the highest quality.


Any facts on this website which are demonstrated to be unintentionally false

should immediately be brought to the attention of the IISL so that they can be rectified

to prevent any potential unintended harm to any individuals and/or organisations.


To that end, the IISL would like to thank the London School of Economics & its lawyers Pinsent Masons

for repeatedly contacting the IISL with their comments, which have been taken into account,

so that the information on this website can remain an honest and fair representation of the facts.


Regarding any potential “contempt of court” concerns, IISL research on UK civil cases

endeavours to avoid any “active” proceedings (i.e. after a date for a trial has been fixed),

and more importantly to avoid “a substantial risk of serious prejudice”,

noting that a slight risk of serious prejudice is not enough, nor is a substantial risk of slight prejudice.

Note also that where civil cases are heard by judges alone (i.e. without juries),

it is much less likely that the court would find that there was a substantial risk of serious prejudice,

as professional judges are expected not to be influenced by the media in reaching a decision.

Regarding potential contempt enforcement, while private parties cannot prosecute for contempt,

they can, if they were to suffer particularly from a publication that offended against the rule,

seek an injunction to stop that publication.  To date, no such injunction has ever been sought.



The IISL would like to thank current and former faculty, administrators and students

from the London School of Economics for their rich information and insightful analyses,

especially those insiders who continue to leak information, and whose identity will remain protected.


The IISL would also like to thank journalists and film-makers from around the world

for their interest in and support of this research over the years,

with specific thanks to journalists/editors from CNN and the Wall Street Journal.


We also appreciate their respect for the legal process by refraining from publishing this research

until after the Courts have had the opportunity to conduct

fair, unbiased and independent investigations of the facts.

The IISL welcomes journalists to use the information on this website

to guide in their discovery for any stories they may want to write.


The IISL’s award-winning research will be summarised in a major upcoming book.


For all media inquiries, contact the IISL.



Finally, the IISL would also like to thank those generous Fellows around the world

who are responsible for the countless tens of thousands of pounds in donations

so that the IISL can conduct this research.

IISL Case Study: ETHICS at THE LONDON SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS

The LSE “lost its moral compass...

...one of the most disgraceful episodes in academic history.”

[2017 UK Minister of State for Education]



One of the UK’s leading experts on justice and ethics, the former Lord Chief Justice Woolf

conducted an extensive inquiry/investigation into ethical breaches at the LSE, in which he found:


”A disconcerting... chapter of failures... errors in judgement... shortcomings in the governance structure and management at the LSE... It does not have an embedded code for dealing with ethics which everyone at the LSE knows they must comply.

The onslaught undoubtedly seriously damaged the LSE’s reputation.

It caused significant distress to staff, students and academics at the LSE.”


IISL research is independently corroborating Lord Woolf’s alarming findings,

by assembling a web of interlocking case studies which appear to be linked by a common thread of

an ongoing culture of unethical behaviour at the highest levels of the LSE,

resulting in the largest lawsuits in the history of Higher Education.
