Welcome

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 postpone most of our upcoming series of talks at The Gallery in Farringdon which were scheduled for the current season.  However Professor Nicholas Pleace was kindly able to give his successful talk on Homelessness via Zoom videoconference on 6th April and we are now presenting our second videoconference with Dr Adam Hanieh on Monday 29th June.  We will be in touch with subscribers with log-in details before the talk.
