Foreign Affairs Committee

Autocracies and UK Foreign Policy inquiry

Inquiry status: Concluded

Report published on Tuesday 5 November 2019. Awaiting Government Response.

Due to the general election on 12 December 2019 the Committee has now closed this inquiry. Following the dissolution of Parliament on 6 November, all Select Committees will cease to exist until after the general election. If an inquiry on this subject is held in the future, the Committee may refer to the evidence already gathered as part of this inquiry.

Scope of the inquiry

 

This inquiry examined 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.
