Safe International Relations

To foster a more just and peaceful world, we must ensure our foreign policy aligns with principles of justice, peace, and international law. I am committed to implementing comprehensive strategies that promote ethical international relations and protect human rights. This includes:

(A) Opposition to Unauthorized Military Action:

We will oppose any military action that does not meet the authorization of the UN Security Council and international law. This policy ensures the UK’s involvement in international conflicts is lawful, morally justifiable, and prioritizes global stability over aggressive intervention.

(B) Ending Complicity in Genocide:

The UK must not be complicit in actions that could constitute war crimes or genocide. With the ICJ raising concerns about the situation in Gaza, we demand an immediate cessation of any support for actions that contribute to human rights violations. This includes halting arms sales and military aid to parties involved in such conflicts.

(C) Promoting Peace Building  and Diplomacy:

Seven out of ten UK citizens believe in maintaining a neutral stance in international conflicts. We will advocate for a foreign policy that emphasizes neutrality, active diplomacy, and the pursuit of peaceful resolutions through dialogue. This approach not only aligns with public sentiment but also enhances the UK’s reputation as a fair and just global actor.

(D) Strengthening International Alliances:

We will work closely with international bodies such as the United Nations to strengthen global governance structures. This involves supporting initiatives that promote peace, security, and cooperation, and holding all nations accountable to the same standards of justice and international law.

(E) Humanitarian Aid and Support:

In conflicts where the UK chooses not to engage militarily, we will instead lead in providing humanitarian aid. This involves supporting refugees, rebuilding communities, and promoting development in war-torn regions, reflecting our commitment to global humanitarian principles.

(F) Legislative Measures:

I will argue for the introduction of legislative measures to ensure that the UK government cannot engage in military actions without clear authorization from the UN Security Council. This includes reforms to the War Powers Act to enhance parliamentary oversight and public transparency in decisions related to war and peace.

By adopting this policy, we would reaffirm our commitment to justice, peace, and the rule of law, ensuring that the UK remains a responsible global actor. We believe that through diplomacy, adherence to international law, and prioritizing humanitarian efforts, we can contribute to a more peaceful and just world.
