Irish Broad Left publishes articles relating to Irish, EU and international politics, economics, society, history, culture and political economy from a Left perspective. This perspective is inclusive of the broad spectrum of the Left, from the Marxist tradition through to the green movement and social-democracy.

Irish Broad Left was launched on February 1, 2019. It hosts discussion and debate in articles that we commission from left activists, grassroots campaigns, community groups and NGOs, academics, political representatives and other individuals. We also publish submissions.

A publication committed to full gender equality

We are committed to fully implementing gender equality in our publication, and will ensure that at least 50% of our authors are women, and that at least 50% of the articles published on our site are written by women.

Organisation of the website

Irish Broad Left is run entirely by volunteers and does not receive funding from any source.

Articles reflect the views of the authors only.

Our website is organised in the following sections: Latest, Politics, Climate, Economy, Social issues, International, and History & Culture.

Respectful debate

While opinion and debate is welcome, only respectful debate will be published on our site in both the articles and comment section. Abusive articles and comments will not be approved for publication.
