Effective Diplomacy


Internationalism is at the core of the Labour movement. We recognise our responsibility to confront injustices we see today and to correct the injustices of the past.


We will:


  • Establish a judge-led inquiry into our country’s alleged complicity in rendition and torture, and the operation of secret courts.
  • Issue a formal apology for the Jallianwala Bagh massacre, and hold a public review into Britain’s role in the Amritsar massacre.
  • Allow the people of the Chagos Islands and their descendants the right to return to the lands from which they should never have been removed.
  • Uphold the human rights of the people of West Papua and recognise the rights of the people of Western Sahara.


We have a duty to stand up for the security and sovereignty of our overseas territories, including the Falklands, and for the rights of our citizens and dual-nationals abroad, and will continue fighting for justice on behalf of Nazanin Zaghari-Ratcliffe and other British nationals wrongly imprisoned or suffering mistreatment in captivity abroad.
