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.


'A World For The Many, Not The Few'

'A World For The Many, Not The Few' is a policy paper authored by Kate Osamor MP, Labour's Shadow Secretary of State for International Development.

The March 2018 paper sets out the Labour leadership's vision for international development as well as its plan for government. The paper builds on both the 2017 General Election Manifesto and will inform the party’s international policy making process, as shaped by the National Policy Forum’s International Policy Commission, as well as the next election manifesto.
