The Royal Commonwealth Society Commonwealth- Conversation: Latest News!

“The Commonwealth Conversation began in July 2009. Over the course of the past six months, we have heard much which gives us reason for concern, but more which gives us reason to hope. Above all, we have heard criticism and ideas which we believe can be used to construct a stronger Commonwealth for the future. Now, we are pulling together our final recommendations and a report which we will publish in early March. "
