A panel discussion examining how policy was made under Margaret Thatcher's leadership of the Opposition between 1975 and 1979
In the first of a series of joint events to launch the Centre for Opposition Studies’ new academic network, the Centre for British Politics and Government at King’s College London will host a panel discussion examining how policy was made under Margaret Thatcher’s leadership of the Opposition between 1975 and 1979.
During this, the 40th anniversary year of Mrs Thatcher entering government, there has been much focus on her time in office. But less attention has been paid to how she got there, and the policy platform she developed in the years immediately prior to entering Number 10.
We are pleased to present this seminar, featuring economist Sir Adam Ridley, who was a close adviser to Mrs Thatcher during those years, and Emily Stacey of Oxford Brookes University, whose doctoral research focuses on this period.
The event will be chaired by Dr Nigel Fletcher, who is Research Director of the Centre for Opposition Studies and a Teaching Fellow in the Department of Political Economy at King’s.
