The Foreign Policy Centre is a UK-based, independent, progressive foreign affairs think tank.
The Centre has three Co-Presidents, representing each of the UK's major political parties:
- Rt Hon Michael Gove MP, Secretary of State for Education
- Baroness Margaret Jay of Paddington, former leader of the House of Lords
- Rt Hon Charles Kennedy MP, former leader of the Liberal Democrats
The Centre was launched in 1998 and founded by the then Foreign Secretary, the late Rt Hon Robin Cook, with Rt Hon Tony Blair as patron.
The Foreign Policy Centre talks in a language people understand. We seek to engage with all people who are interested in foreign policy, whether from political life, the media, the private sector, voluntary organisations, students or the general public.
