The Fabian Society is the world's oldest political think tank, founded in London in 1884 by the leading lights of Victorian-era British socialism. While a think tank, it is also a mass membership organisation open to all. It went on to help found the Labour Representation Committee in 1900, out of which grew the Labour Party itself.
We are a society of socialists committed to the traditions of democracy, equality, and the workers' movement. As an organisation, we are committed to combing the most rigorous policy research with the most wide-ranging activism.
This reading group is a project of the North East London Fabian Society. We will meet regularly to discuss books, essays, articles and studies that shed light on the important issues facing the 21st-century world.
Attendance is open to all, regardless of political beliefs, party affiliations(or the lack thereof), or background.
