2019 SEP Summer School: Origins and Consequences of the 1982-1986 Split in the ICFI

From July 21-27, 2019, the Socialist Equality Party (United States) hosted an international Summer School on the historical origins and political consequences of the ICFI’s split with the Workers Revolutionary Party, the former British section, from 1982-1986.

The lectures delivered at the school concentrated on the history of the ICFI from 1982 to 1995, the period from the initial formulation of a detailed critique of the WRP’s revisions of the theory and program of Trotskyism to the decision to transform the leagues of the ICFI into parties.

The lecturers examined the discussions within the International Committee on critical issues relating to strategy, program, perspective and organization in the aftermath of the February 1986 break with the WRP.
