The Conservative Party and Socialism

Dr Michael Kandiah discusses conservative leaders attitudes to socialism.

Successive leaders of the Conservative Party have taken the threat of socialism very seriously. This meant understanding its appeal to working class voters and seeking to counteract it. In this talk, Michael Kandiah will explore the attitudes to socialism of Conservative leaders and analyse their different approaches.

Dr Michael Kandiah is Director of the Witness Seminar Programme at the Centre for Contemporary British History, Institute of Historical Research. His research focuses primarily on the history of the organisation and development of the post-war Conservative Party, although he has published on a broad range of contemporary topics including the media, British relations with Europe and think tanks.

This event is organised by the Socialist History Society in partnership with Bishopsgate Institute.
