Our 2022 conference will be held at University College London on Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th June.

The conference is tied to a book project which aims to explore the extent to which ‘Thatcherism’ was shaped by cabinet ministers of the Thatcher era – rather than the Prime Minister herself, who sometimes disagreed with policies her government pursued.

The conference features biographies of individual cabinet ministers by leading academics, focusing upon the ministers’ contributions to the political project to which Thatcher gave her name.

The keynote will be delivered by Caroline Slocock – former Private Secretary to Margaret Thatcher – who will speak on Thatcher and Cabinet Government.

Registration for the conference is now open.

The conference programme is now available to read online.
