A Fairer, Greener World

Real hope.
Real change.

In a world threatened by war, climate breakdown and the rise of authoritarian regimes, the Green Party believes that the UK’s foreign policy should be based on shared commitments to democracy, peace, global solidarity and the protection of human rights.

Green MPs will work for the UK to:

  • Take the lead in upholding the right to self-determination and the enforcement of international law.
  • Continue to support Ukraine as it resists Russian invasion.
  • Re-join the EU as soon as the political conditions are right.

Israel and Palestine

We condemned the appalling murder of hundreds of Israeli civilians by Hamas, and since then have watched in horror as Israeli forces have committed war crimes that have caused the deaths of tens of thousands of Palestinian civilians.

Green MPs will push for:

  • An immediate bilateral ceasefire.
  • An end to arms sales to Israel.
  • Redoubled efforts to secure the release of hostages taken on 7th October 2023.
  • An urgent international effort to end the illegal occupation of Palestinian land.
  • A durable political solution that ensures security and equal rights for Israelis and Palestinians
  • The reinstatement of funding for UNRWA and support for South Africa’s submission to the International Court of Justice.

Nuclear weapons and NATO

Most of the world’s countries do not possess weapons of mass destruction and are safer as a result.

Elected Greens will:

  • Push for the UK to sign the UN Treaty on the Prohibition of Nuclear Weapons (TPNW) and following this to immediately begin the process of dismantling our nuclear weapons, cancelling the Trident programme and removing all foreign nuclear weapons from UK soil.
  • Work with international partners to enlarge membership of the TPNW and ensure that all states meet their commitments under the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty.

The Green Party recognises that NATO has an important role in ensuring the ability of its member states to respond to threats to their security. We would work within NATO to achieve:

  • A greater focus on global peacebuilding.
  • A commitment to a ‘No First Use’ of nuclear weapons.

Climate diplomacy and overseas aid

In recognition of the importance of supporting countries in the Global South to decarbonise their economies and build resilience to increasingly severe storms, floods and extreme heat, Green MPs would push for the UK to:

  • Increase international aid to 1% of gross national income (GNI) by 2033.
  • Increase climate finance for the Global South to 1.5% of GNI by 2033, with an additional contribution to a newly established Loss and Damage Fund.
