British Labour Movement and Internationalism – POSTPONED

Socialist History Society Public Meeting on Saturday 28th March 2020 has been POSTPONED until the public health situation improves


In this era of Brexit, the British Labour Party and the wider labour movement face the twin challenges of globalised capitalism on the one hand, and an upsurge in backward-looking nationalism on the other. Siren voices call on Labour to embrace one side or the other.

In this context it seems more necessary than ever to re-examine the internationalist tradition within British labour and democratic movements over the preceding two centuries.

Socialist History, the journal of the Socialist History Society, is producing a special issue, to appear in spring 2020, on ‘the British Labour Movement and Internationalism’.

Duncan Bowie, who guest edited the issue, will give a talk to coincide with the journal publication.
