Unlike the Conservatives, Labour believes Britain’s foreign policy should be guided by the values of peace, universal rights & international law. Today, these values are being tested. As we leave the European Union, keeping Britain global is one of our country’s most urgent tasks.
Jobs in global supply chains can be of enormous importance to working people across the Global South, but human rights abuses & exploitation of lower environmental standards & workers’ rights are too common.
Labour will take robust action to end the self-regulation of Department for International Development private contractors, establishing & enforcing new rules to ensure aid is used to reduce poverty for the many, not to increase profits for the few.
