The International Policy Commission develops Labour’s international policy. It is responsible for foreign policy, international development, defence and Britain’s future relationship with Europe.

The Commission meets regularly to consider evidence and submissions, identify challenges, and develop Labour policy in these areas. The members of the Policy Commission are drawn from the National Policy Forum, the Shadow Cabinet and the National Executive Committee. Its membership reflects all parts of our movement, including Labour party members, affiliated organisations and elected politicians.

The Commission will be addressing international aid and Sustainable Development Goals, including policies on eradicating poverty and modern day slavery; protecting the environment; Human Rights; and strengthening economies and societies across the Global South.
