​The precise work programme for the Prime Minister's Special Envoy on Freedom of Religion or Belief (FoRB), whose appointment was announced on 4 July, is still under discussion. At a high level, it will include working with the Foreign and Commonwealth Office's overseas network and international partners to achieve a step-change in our diplomatic efforts to defend the right to FoRB and proactively working for change in selected countries. Because of the sensitivities of some of this work, it would not be appropriate to give the details of the work programme at this page.
