Each of the eight National Policy Forum commissions are conducting policy consultations. Launched on 4 June, the consultation ends on 30 June. Now’s the time to make your views known.
The International Policy Commission (IPC) covers foreign, international development, and defence policy. Shadow Foreign Secretary Lisa Nandy attends IPC meetings together with Preet Gill and John Healey, Shadow International Development and Defence Secretaries. Our readers will be intrigued to know that the unpopular and outdated ‘humanitarian military intervention’ of the New Labour era is being mooted again.
