Conservatives & Conservatism - Specialist Group of the Political Studies Association

Conservatives and Conservatism is dedicated to the academic study of Conservative politics, broadly defined. It aims to organise at least one event each year and to facilitate collaboration between academics working in this field.

The Conservative History Group

The Conservative History group was founded in 2002 as a forum for anyone interested in the history of the Conservative & Unionist Party. It organises regular events and publishes the Conservative History Journal.

The Margaret Thatcher Foundation

The Margaret Thatcher Foundation website provides free online access to thousands of historical documents relating to the Thatcher period, bringing together many from the Conservative Party Archive, Churchill Archive Centre, The National Archives, as well as sources in the US. It is an invaluable aid and complement to the material in the CPA.
