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 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 future 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 current season of talks ended on 12th June and the new autumn programme begins on Monday 15th September.
