About Us

“When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one.”

– Edmund Burke

The Edmund Burke Society

We are an LSE society for the development of true conservative thought on campus and in universities across the UK. Founded as a reaction to conservatism’s insipid presence in our universities, we aim to rekindle the spark of truly conservative political philosophy in the new generation. We welcome everyone to join us.
