EXPLAINED: The Labour party’s foreign policy in UK

David Lammy, Member of Parliament and Shadow Secretary of UK’s State for Foreign, Commonwealth, and Development Affairs, provides an overview of Labour’s proposal for the United Kingdom’s foreign policy if they are elected to the government.

In a world that has become more polarized, volatile, and unpredictable, he discusses the United Kingdom’s advantages and prospects in this environment. In addition, he provides an assessment of the United Kingdom’s current government and its foreign policy approach, focusing specifically on the strained relationships with allies and the economic woes of the United Kingdom.

The shadow foreign secretary investigates the following essential questions:

  • What steps would a potential Labour government take to update Britain’s diplomatic approach and restore the country’s alliances to strengthen the country’s position in the international community?
  • How would the Labour party pursue security cooperation with its allies in a new period of warfare in Europe?
  • How would the Labour party approach the problem of rising energy costs, energy security and the ongoing climate crisis?
  • How can British foreign policy help to spur economic growth at home, given the state of the British economy?
  • In the wake of the United Kingdom government’s decision to back out of its commitment to spend 0.7% of GDP on overseas development, what are Labour’s plans?
