The largest-ever public consultation on the future of the Commonwealth concludes with a call for bold reform and greater investment if the 54-member association is to avoid being marginalised in an increasingly crowded marketplace. ‘An Uncommon Association, A Wealth of Potential’, the final report of the Commonwealth Conversation, is published today to coincide with annual Commonwealth Day celebrations around the world.

After eight months of consultation, today, on Commonwealth Day, we draw the Commonwealth Conversation to a close with the publication of our final report, ‘An Uncommon Association, A Wealth of Potential’, which sets out ten key recommendations. We hope that you will find these to be a fair representation of all that you have told us over the last few months. We are enormously grateful for all of your contributions – this has been such a fun project because your posts have been so interesting, not to mention provocative!
As the Commonwealth Conversation comes to a close we are delighted to announce the winners of the My Commonwealth and Commonwealth Chat competitions.
The Commonwealth is host of nations who claim good government, justice, and human rights as essential in the context of international relationships. As technology provides the means of easy international mobility like never before, who we are as global citizens, or at least, citizens of the commonwealth, needs to be considered with personal awareness along side of national claims and the place where we are in the world among all peoples.
