Ernest Mandel was one of the most innovative Marxists of the second half of the 20th century. As a “professional revolutionary” he devoted his energy, his knowledge and his wide-ranging culture to the struggle for socialism and - this went without saying as far as he was concerned - building a revolutionary party, the Fourth International.

At the same time he was immensely intellectually active in academic and non-academic contexts. He was a born educator and spoke throughout the world just as readily to groups of intellectual and students as to workers and “ordinary people”.

Ten years after his death, a symposium is being organised in his native country, Belgium, to pay tribute to his intellectual and militant contribution and ensure that his work continues to be as widely known as it merits.

The symposium to be held in Brussels, 19 November, will take place in French and Flemish. For more details go to: http://www.ernestmandel.org/fr/colloqium.htm
