Research State Structures Conference was a closed gathering held in London in 1981 of researchers, journalists and academics to hear and exchange research on secret Cold War preparations, intelligence activities, and state surveillance, and which had come to light during and after the 1978 ABC case. The meeting was part of the events leading to the founding of Statewatch. The document we are publishing here is the Agenda.
