ABSTRACT
The article focuses on a conference which was held at South Bank University in London, England on May 1, 1999. The theme of the conference was "The German Influences on the British Labour Movement, c. 1900-50." Some of the speakers were as follows: Stefan Berger of Cardiff University discussed the relationship of the labor movement with social democracy in Western Europe during the first half of the twentieth century; Nina Fishman of Westminster University detailed Eduard Bernstein's links with the British labor movement and Mark Minion of South Bank assesses the Socialist Vanguard Group's policies towards the future of Europe during the 1940s. The two main areas discussed in the conference were the influences of German and British brands of socialism and the tradition of the Internationaler Sozialistischer Kampfbund.
