The International Leaders Programme (ILP) is an international leadership development and networking Programme.[1] The programme is organised and delivered by the Foreign and Commonwealth Office.[2]


The ILP was established by the then Foreign Secretary William Hague.[3] It identifies potential global leaders of the future and brings them to the United Kingdom for high-level meetings, briefings, and diplomatic visits.[4] The goal of the Programme is to promote lasting global partnerships with emerging leaders and future decision-makers.[5]

ILP participants have represented over 90 countries, and the alumni has over 300 members to date.
