As a follow-on to last week’s One Day Without Us day of action, LEL staff posed for a photo collage – or, rather, two. The first shows the LEL division and their places of origin (above – click for detail). The second (below) shows only those with UK citizenship.

LEL would be a substantially less interesting and fun place to work and study without its tremendous diversity of brilliant teachers and researchers from around the world. Whatever lies ahead for this country, our international staff and students must not be used as bargaining chips.
