Welcome

Our Association supports the values of democracy and social justice embodied in the English edition of Le Monde Diplomatique newspaper.

We provide a forum for debates on contemporary international issues, chiefly through our public Café Diplo talks held at The Gallery in Farringdon, London on selected evenings.  In the past our talks have always been on Mondays, but for the next season please note that they will sometimes be on other days of the week.  Our events (presented in English) are opened by an invited speaker and allow for lively debate.  Doors open at 18:30.  Tickets on the door.  

The cafe scheduled for Monday 14th April - "Iran's International Relationships - what prospects for the future?"  with Dr Arshin Adib-Moghaddam is cancelled for reasons beyond the control of the speaker.   We apologise for the disappointment and we hope to hold a cafe on Iran in the future.
