Summary FPC is a European think tank launched under the patronage of the British Prime Minister Tony Blair. Its aim is to promote a vision of a fair and rule-based world order. Through its research, publications, and events, FPC aims to develop innovative policy ideas promoting five key ideas: (1) effective multilateral solutions to global problems; (2) democratic, well governed states as the foundation of order and development; (3) public/private partnerships to deliver public goods; (4) support for progressive policy through effective public diplomacy; and (5) inclusive definitions of citizenship to underpin internationalist practice. FPC has a cross cutting project, The Next Generation Democracy, which looks at the future of European democracy with partners in France, Germany, Sweden, the Netherlands, and Italy. A follow-up, Global Europe, looks at Europe's role in the world and has held seminars in London, Oslo, and Brussels. It will involve contributions by experts on global security, aid, and development in eight countries, ranging from France to India.
