Foreign Affairs Committee: Inquiry

Active diplomacy for a changing world - the UK's International Priorities

The Foreign Affairs Committee carried out scrutiny of the FCO's foreign policy strategy, "Active diplomacy for a changing world - the UK's International Priorities". The strategy considered likely developments in international relations over the next ten years and the role of the UK on the world stage. It identified the Government's strategic international priorities and described the FCO's role in pursuing them.

The Committee undertook a long-term review of the strategy, assessing its contribution to the conduct of British foreign policy and its continuing relevance to a constantly changing international situation.
