The programme was set up in 1996 thanks to a generous anonymous benefaction from a former PhD student inspired by "Ralph Miliband's contribution to social thought". He specified that the funds be used in memory of his friend and mentor 'to advance his spirit of free social inquiry' and the diversity of thought that has always been the hallmark of LSE.
Convenor: Dr Robin Archer, Director of the Postgraduate Programme in Political Sociology
This year's theme is THE WORLD UNMADE in which we:
Take stock of a world that seems to have stepped out of the Covid-19 pandemic and into an ever more precarious reality. How have long-standing geopolitical certainties been upended? What is to be done about the mounting cost of living crises that threaten to swamp entire economies? And what new possibilities have emerged for a left resurgence?
Speakers: Andre Singer and Claudia Heiss
Date: Monday 7 November 2022
