Our association

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 “Cafe Diplo” talks held at The Gallery in Farringdon, London on Monday evenings (see venue). Our events (presented in English) are opened by an invited speaker and allow for lively debate. Admission free, but suggested contribution to expenses £3, concessions £2.

If you have missed any past Cafes, you will find recordings of them under the “Audio” tab.  Recordings are usually available within 48 hours after the Cafe.

VIDEO CONFERENCING OPTION FOR NEXT TALKS As you all know, due to concerns over the spread of Covid-19, we have had to cancel our planned series of live talks at The Gallery in Farringdon which were scheduled for the current season.  However since April we have presented all our talks via Zoom Videoconferencing and we plan to continue with new talks into 2021.
