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.
