Tony Blair

Right Honourable Tony Blair served as Prime Minister of the United Kingdom from 1997 to 2007. Since leaving office he has spent most of his time on work in the Middle East, in Africa and on the fight against religiously based extremism. Through the Tony Blair Institute, he is bringing together all his activities to focus on making globalisation work for all: to help governments and their people, whether in Africa or emerging countries, alleviate poverty, raise living standards, foster religious and cultural tolerance and advance peace and reconciliation. Added to this is a new pillar of work – Renewing the Centre – which will bring together the best ideas in both public and private policy spheres to provide answers to some of today’s major global challenges.
