Female Genital Mutilation and ensuring that the realities

of the lives of women and girls are not ignored in favour of

improving trade links or building regional alliances.

b) The combatting of climate change and other environmental

crises, and reducing their impact on the stability of fragile

states and regions and on international migrant flows.

c) Protecting, defending, and promoting human rights for all,

including LGBT+ individuals who are persecuted across the

world.

d) Reducing inequality within and between nations, working

to combat poverty not just in the interests of the poor and

disadvantaged but to avoid the further growth of instability

based on a sense of deep-seated injustice.

e) Leading in the worldwide response to new technologies -

supporting innovation while addressing issues of privacy,

human safety, and cybercrime.

2. Invest in building strong and effective diplomatic relationships

across the world, allowing the UK to work with its neighbours to

promote national strategic priorities and goals, particularly by:

a) Maintaining the closest possible diplomatic relationship with

the European Union, regardless of the UK's position within

it, including close liaison with the European External Action

Service.

b) Building a wide, changing coalition of support on specific

policy priorities, including developing and smaller nations that

share our interests.

c) Establishing a new cabinet committee led by the Foreign

Secretary to drive co-ordinate international policy across

Whitehall.

d) If the UK were to leave the EU, increasing the Foreign and

Commonwealth Office budget by nearly £1bn to replace EU

functions that would be lost and to build the relationships

that would be necessary if seeking new deals outside the EU.

e) Publishing a charter for British citizens in crisis overseas and

working with mobile operators to provide people with their

nearest consulate's emergency telephone number by text as

soon as they connect to a mobile network outside the UK.

3. Build on our international obligations to security and defence
