What Is Today’s Commonwealth?

The Commonwealth is simply a collection, a club of 53 nations from Africa, Europe, Pacific, Caribbean, Asia and the Americas. The 53 collaborate and work together on their journeys, to develop and enhance opportunities for their citizens.

The 53 are bound together by common values such as-

 1. Democracy
 2. Human rights
 3. International peace and security
 4. Tolerance, respect and understanding
 5. Freedom of Expression
 6. Separation of Powers
 7. Rule of Law
 8. Good Governance
 9. Sustainable Development
10. Protecting the Environment
11. Access to Health, Education, Food and Shelter
12. Gender Equality
13. Importance of Young People in the Commonwealth
14. Recognition of the Needs of Small States
15. Recognition of the Needs of Vulnerable States
16. The Role of Civil Society

These 16 core values are the foundation of what is expected or journey nations must be striving towards, as members of the Commonwealth. The wonderful thing about this coming together of nations, is the accountability of one another and the network made possible to express concerns about how a member is operating. Being a nation within the Commonwealth allows pressure to be placed on members and enables the core values to be prompted as and when, in a democratic, respectful and peaceful way.

The Commonwealth simply helps and assists nations. Giving a voice and more opportunities to citizens, so they can live a life of hope and expression. Without the latter two, life can be extremely poor.
