Abstract:

This report is the outcome of the Standing Senate Committee on Foreign Affairs and International Trade's hearings on the establishment of a Charter of the Commonwealth, as agreed to by the Commonwealth Heads of Government meeting in Perth, Australia, in October 2011. Through our study, we have heard from witnesses in Canada and abroad, and from diverse backgrounds, including government, civil society, students, and international organisations. Learning from their perspectives, we have come to understand that a succinct document outlining core Commonwealth values stands to perform important educational and inspirational functions, particularly amongst the youth and parliamentarians that help make the Commonwealth a unique international organisation. A single, accessible document pulling those values together, and adopted by the Commonwealth's 54 member states, will be instrumental in promoting those values worldwide.
