Research and study of ideologies of social and national emancipation and their application to conditions within imperialist society


The Institute’s library contains an important library of pamphlets from Britain and Ireland and elsewhere, mostly dating from the 1970s to 1990s. but also including earlier items. It is currently making plans to make a full analytical catalogue of these items and make it available on this website, along with digitalisation of the rare and unique items.

A proportion of these pamphlets are not found in the British Library, the British Library of Political and Economic Science, and other national collections, so this will be a valuable resource for researchers into the labour and progressive movemnts.

The Institute is in dialogue with a cataloguing agency and is drawing up a plan to issue a grant or grants to researchers in library studies or other relevant fields to carry out this task. These grants will be publicly advertised, but inquiries to the Institute are welcomed at any time.
