Britain on the Way to Joining the transform! europe Network

The first issue of Britain’s new ‘Transform’ journal has been published and is receiving a great response: copies are flying off the shelves! Alongside its European counterparts our new journal aims to strengthen and develop the politics of the radical left – and this has never been more important in Britain than now.

With a right-wing Conservative government pursuing a hard Brexit, with an increasingly anti-immigrant narrative, we have drawn together activists and intellectuals to help provide a theoretical basis to advance the left in this new political context. The first issue’s wide-ranging contents address key issues on a global and national level, from Trump to Brexit, from left populism to world capitalist crisis.

As we engage more people in the debates here in Britain, we will also be working more closely with European partners and joining transform! working groups. As we often say – the problems we face are not just national problems and they cannot be solved on a national basis. So we look forward to increased cooperation and dialogue with the radical left across Europe!
