The Committee received evidence on what matters should be considered in the course of the inquiry. This included evidence debating the definition of 'foreign policy research', and the challenges in classifying the types of organisations which conduct this research.

The report consists of five chapters, with Chapter 1 outlining the context and administrative details of the inquiry; and an overview of the differing views on the scope of the inquiry. The remainder of the report is structured as follows:

  • Chapter 2 outlines the government funding available for foreign policy research;
  • Chapter 3 discusses the role of foreign policy research;
  • Chapter 4 discusses some of the issues with the current funding models and research outputs; and
  • Chapter 5 details the committee's conclusions and recommendations.
