About Progressive international policy

IPPR is embarking on a new programme of work on progressive international and foreign policy supported by the Gates Foundation and Open Society Foundation. This programme seeks to shape the debate on foreign and international policy in the run up to a general election and is scoping a new international policy center at IPPR to fill a gap in the policy eco-system, generating international policy ideas centered on progressive values.
