Hide Profile

Successor of the Labour and Socialist International (LSI/SAI) 1923-1940, constituted at the Eighth International Socialist Conference in Frankfurt am Main in 1951; with the prospective member parties eager to ensure their autonomy it took six years of negotiations to found a new social democratic international; at first only an information bureau was established, the Socialist Information and Liaison Office (SILO) 1946-1947, later the Committee of the International Socialist Conferences (COMISCO) 1947-1951; the COMISCO changed into the Council of the SI in 1951, its subcommittee into the Bureau of the SI; its aim was to establish social justice within and between nations and to end all forms of oppression; its ideology is based on the principles of democratic socialism; the SI regularly sends missions to specific areas and countries; it is an important international social democratic forum, but its decisions are not binding for its members; beginning in 1976 the position of council chairman became more important when Willy Brandt held the post; its secretariat is in London.
