The Labour Movements specialist group exists to promote research into all aspects of the politics of labour, broadly defined. It is especially interested in reformist and social democratic politics and in communist studies.


The PSA’s network of 60 Specialist Groups offers a research focus for all members and covers a vast range of specialities within the discipline. SGs provide an opportunity for groups of academics who share a common interest in a particular area of the discipline to organise meetings, coordinate communications, and as outlets for research – as well as giving PSA members opportunities for developing their academic impact and professional development.”
