WHAT DOES FABIAN SOCIETY MEAN IN ENGLISH?

Fabian Society

Fabian Society

The Fabian Society is a British socialist organisation whose purpose is to advance the principles of socialism via gradualist and reformist means. The society laid many of the foundations of the Labour Party and subsequently affected the policies of states emerging from the decolonisation of the British Empire, most notably India and Singapore. Originally, the Fabian society was committed to the establishment of a socialist economy, alongside a commitment to British imperialism as a progressive and modernizing force. Today its viewpoints are more social democratic. Today, the society functions primarily as a think tank and is one of 15 socialist societies affiliated with the Labour Party. Similar societies exist in Australia, Canada and in New Zealand.
