Committee explore Government's ambitions for its post-Brexit foreign policy

12 March 2018

The Foreign Affairs Committee has today published a report on ‘Global Britain’. This report sets out what the Government has said about ‘Global Britain’ so far and lays out the key questions that it should seek to address in the formulation of a strategy to underpin it.

The report also marks the launch of a long-term piece of work. Over the course of 2018 and 2019, the Committee explores in detail the Government's ambitions and objectives for its post-Brexit foreign policy.

Send a written submission

As part of its long-term inquiry into ‘Global Britain’, the Committee would welcome written submissions focussing on:

  • What would be required to make ‘Global Britain’ a credible strategy, and the extent to which those elements are already in place;
  • Metrics against which the success of ‘Global Britain’ can be assessed;
  • Whether and how ‘Global Britain’ differs from previous approaches to UK foreign policy;
  • How elements of foreign policy such as rule of law, cultural influence and military interests should be balanced against the trade aspects of ‘Global Britain’;
  • Which regions, countries and multilateral organisations the UK should prioritise, and the policy and resource trade-offs that may be involved;
  • The capacity of the Foreign and Commonwealth Office and other relevant government departments to deliver upon Global Britain.

Send a written submission to the inquiry on Global Britain.

The closing date for submission of written evidence is Monday 16 April 2018

We encourage members of underrepresented groups to submit written evidence. We aim to have diverse panels of Select Committee witnesses and ask organisations to bear this in mind when we ask them to choose a representative.
