The Foreign Policy Centre

The Foreign Policy Centre (FPC) is an outward-looking, non-partisan international affairs think tank based in the UK. Our mission is to provide an open and accessible space for the ideas, knowledge and experience of experts, academics and activists from across the world, so that their voices can be heard by a global audience of citizens and decision makers in order to find solutions to today’s international challenges.

The FPC has a global perspective and a focus on Europe, the former Soviet Union, the Middle East and Asia. We also seek to examine what a progressive, pragmatic and internationalist foreign policy for the United Kingdom could be. A commitment to democracy, human rights, good governance and conflict resolution is at the heart of our work.

The FPC delivers its work through a mix of research and events. Larger publications such as Spotlight on Turkmenistan, Saudi Arabia and Iran: The Struggle to Shape the Middle East, The rise of illiberal civil society in the former Soviet Union? and Closing the Door: the challenge facing activists from the former Soviet Union seeking asylum or refuge bring together expert contributions from academics, thinkers and activists from across the world. Our website is also home to regular articles and briefings from our international network of research fellows and other expert authors.

Our active events programme features regular, public Westminster seminars on important issues hosted in the UK Houses of Parliament that bring together experts, politicians and journalists to discuss key foreign policy issues. We also periodically hold seminars in Brussels and at other international forums.  We also hold conferences and private roundtables.

The FPC is led by Director Adam Hug, with Dame Audrey Glover DBE CMG as chair of the board of Trustees.
