Radical left politics The continuing intensification of neoliberal policies across Europe and beyond will bring major challenges to the workers and popular classes, at home and abroad.

The re-composition of radical left politics in the UK and internationally presents both a challenge and an opportunity for activities and academics. In this context, Critical Labour Studies (CLS) in partnership with the Conference of Socialist Economics (CSE) has organised a one-day event with the intention of encouraging discussion and reflection after the political changes of the current year.

The CLS tradition is one of open debate and discussion. The day will be organised around four themed session, with maximum time for discussion from participants:

Crisis and austerity: trade union responses
Left poiltics and the labour movement
Alternatives to austerity in Europe
New worlds of work

Speakers will include activists/academics from a number of backgrounds including, Martin Smith, GMB Maurizio Atzeni, Jenny Chan, Rachel Cohen, John Kelly, Phoebe Moore, Paul Stewart, Martin Upchurch, Bob Jeffery.

Also for your diary: the annual two-day CLS Symposium and workshop will be held in Durham in November 2016.
