Green Manifesto 2010 International Development, Peace and Security
Green Party international policy is aimed at reducing global inequalities, in the name of fairness, sustainability and peace, and in the context of an interdependent world.
We will make Britain a force for international good, respected throughout the global community, and cease simply being the United States’ best and most reliable ally. Respect is gained through international policies designed to help the vulnerable to help themselves in a global framework that gives every country a voice in decision- making. Respect is gained by taking a leading role in preventing conflict, protecting civilians threatened by conflict and promoting human rights and international law. The Green Party wants Britain to have this kind of respect.
International organisations today reflect power rather than democracy. The Green Party will work towards democratising the international community, sharing power, influence and wealth more fairly and more widely.
These are the foundations of peace and security for all. Secure peoples, at ease with themselves and with others, seek peace rather than war.
