Twenty Years On! The Great Miners Strike in Historical and International Perspective.
A conference to be held on Saturday 1st November 2003, at the Institute of Historical Research, Senate House, Malet St, London, WC1
Keynote speaker: Professor Vic Allen, author of _The Militancy of British Miners_
March 2004 marks the twentieth anniversary of the start of the 1984/5 British miners strike, one of the great labour struggles of the second half of the twentieth century.
This conference seeks to mark the event by placing miners strikes and mining trade unionism in an historical and international perspective. It will not only examine the British miners strikes of 1972, 1974 and 1984/5, but also relate these conflicts to the longer history of coal-mining in Britain and attempt to put these epic labour struggles into an international perspective.
