The programme was set up in 1996 thanks to a generous anonymous benefaction from a former PhD student inspired by "Ralph Miliband's contribution to social thought". He specified that the funds be used in memory of his friend and mentor 'to advance his spirit of free social inquiry' and the diversity of thought that has always been the hallmark of LSE.
