The Commonwealth is one of the world’s oldest political association of states. Membership today is based on free and equal voluntary co-operation, there are currently 54 independent countries

The Commonwealth includes some of the world’s largest, smallest, richest and poorest countries, spanning five regions. Thirty-one of its members are small states, many of them island nations. It is home to 2.4 billion citizens and over 60% of these are under the age of 30. Member countries have no legal obligation one to another. Instead, they are united by language, history, culture, and their shared values of democracy, human rights, and the rule of law. The Commonwealth’s guiding principles are in its Charter: https://thecommonwealth.org/about-us/charter.

The Commonwealth is involved in diverse activities, from helping countries with trade negotiations to encouraging women’s leadership, building the small business sector, supporting youth participation at all levels of society, and providing experts to write laws.  More information about The Commonwealth at www.thecommonwealth.org.
