The future of the left since 1884

Fabian International Policy Group

Fabian member policy group focusing on foreign policy, international development and defence.


The Fabian Society International Policy Group (Fabian IPG) is a dedicated network for Fabian members with professional and academic expertise in foreign affairs, international development and defence policy. Established in 2016, it provides a forum for debating the big global issues of the day and the major challenges facing the centre-left here in the UK and abroad.

Our aims are to be an exciting intellectual forum for exploring and debating key global policy issues; to work and collaborate with sister organisations around the world in the renewal of progressive politics; and to contribute to the development of the UK Labour party’s policy making through our events, commentary and policy output.

To join our mailing list and get involved in the Fabian IPG please email our convener Rayhan Haque
