The Miners' Strike, 30 years on
29 March public conference, King's College London
This one-day public conference marks three decades since Margaret Thatcher sought to dismantle Britain's coal industry, evoking a passionate response from the miners and dramatically affected mining communities. Leading figures at the time, historians and legal scholars will reflect on the causes, course and enduring consequences of the strike for unions, the state and the law in Britain today. Organised by H&P's Trade Union Forum and the British Universities Industrial Relations Association (BUIRA), the conference will be recorded to create an oral archive.
More information about the speakers, schedule and booking - £7 per person including lunch and coffee - will be available soon.
