Welcome International Privacy Policy       Copyright © 2003-2015 jamicrosys.


                             Labour’s international policy is                              based on both our values and                              our interests as a nation.

What happens beyond our own borders increasingly have direct effects at home, and our interests are best served when countries share progressive principles and values and co-operate to achieve security, prosperity and justice. It is to our own benefit to engage positively and proactively in the world, building alliances and acting upon our values. Part of Labour’s values-based approach is our determination that the UK should play an active role in the world, acting to defend those values and leading the debates on the key issues. We are playing a key role on issues such as climate change, world trade, energy security and conflict prevention.
We have pressed for reform of international institutions including the United Nations, and actively support the promotion and protection of human rights, democracy and good governance. And we are standing firm against the threats to people around the world from terrorism and weapons proliferation.
These issues represent a complex series of challenges for the future, for which Britain needs to be prepared and properly equipped.
