The Integrated Security, Defence and Foreign Policy Review

Inquiry

In this inquiry, we explore how the Government should conduct an Integrated Security, Defence and Foreign Policy Review. The review is considered “the most radical reassessment of [the UK’s] place in the world since the end of the Cold War”, and covers “all aspects of international policy”.    

This inquiry will identify lessons learned from the timing, methodology and structure of previous reviews of security and defence, and consider international best practice.
