Unformatted text preview: The Foreign Policy Centre is a leading European think-tank launched under the patronage of the British Prime Minister Tony Blair to develop a vision of a fair and rule-based world order. Through our research, publications and events, we aim to develop innovative policy ideas that promote: • Effective multilateral solutions to global problems • Democratic and well-governed states as the foundation of order and development • Partnerships with the private sector and NGOs to deliver public goods • Support for progressive policy through effective public diplomacy • Inclusive definitions of citizenship to underpin internationalist policies The Foreign Policy Centre has produced a range of publications by key thinkers on subjects relating to the role of non-state actors in policymak- ing, the future of Europe, international security and identity. These include: The Post-Modern State and the World Order by Robert Cooper, Network Europe and Public Diplomacy by Mark Leonard, NGO Rights and Responsibilities by Michael Edwards, After Multiculturalism by Yasmin Alibhai-Brown, Trading Identities by Wally Olins and Third Generation Corporate Citizenship by Simon Zadek. The Centre runs a rich and varied events programme at The Mezzanine in Elizabeth House – a forum where representatives from NGOs, think- tanks, companies and government can interact with speakers who include prime ministers, Nobel Prize laureates, global corporate leaders, activists, media executives and cultural entrepreneurs from around the world. The Centre’s magazine, Global Thinking, is a regular outlet for new thinking on foreign policy issues. Features include profiles, exclusive interviews with decision makers, and opinion pieces by the Centre’s per- manent staff and associated authors. The Centre runs a unique internship programme – the UK’s only route for new graduates into the foreign policy arena.
