About

The Committee for a Workers’ International is a Trotskyist International founded in 1974 by supporters of Militant Tendency, subsequently the Socialist Party of England and Wales (SPEW), and international supporters.

After the ‘open turn’, ending Militant entryism in the Labour party in the early 1990s, some supporters around Ted Grant formed the International Marxist Tendency.

In 2019, divisions between the International Secretariat (IS - dominated by SPEW’s Peter Taffe and supporters) and the International Executive Committee (IEC) resulted in a split, with the IS ‘refounding’ the CWI with the support of most of SPEW and a minority of International groups. Two organisations resulted - CWI (Refounded) and CWI (Majority) - the latter supported by the Irish Socialist Party.
