The future of the left since 1884


The Fabian Society’s programme seeks to drive the political and policy renewal of the left in Britain


We assess the key political and policy challenges that face the UK over the next 10 to 15 years and propose responses that are rooted in our values and history. We generate the ideas and strategy needed to ensure that the Labour party is in a position to win power and govern well, locally and nationally.

Our research, editorial and events projects focus on FOUR core themes:

  • Politics and power – electoral strategy, political reform, unequal power
  • State and society – social challenges, the welfare state, tax and spend
  • Economy and work – economic reform, the future of work
  • Green and global – climate change, the UK in the world

We are always interested in discussing new projects within these themes. Find out about partnerships with the Fabian Society or writing for the Fabians.

Our objectives for the rest of the parliament are to:

  1. Support the Labour party to win the next general election and return to government
  1. Secure the adoption of transformative Fabian policy proposals in the next UK Labour manifesto and in policy platforms at every level
  1. Help to build a strong, united and diverse Labour movement
  1. Strengthen the capabilities, activism and reach of the society
