Foreign Affairs Committee
Accepting written submissions.
This inquiry examines the policies of the UK Government towards autocratic states. The Committee aims to scrutinise both direct foreign-policy relationships with autocracies and the ways in which autocracies interact with the rules-based international system. It complements other work being undertaken by the Committee, particularly the inquiries into sanctions and media freedom.
