The Modern Commonwealth: challenges in the 21st century

LSE Public Lecture

On the eve of the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting in Kampala at end-November 2007, Secretary-General Don McKinnon will set the 53-nation family of nations in the context of the challenges facing a fast-changing, interdependent world – above all in entrenching a genuine culture of democracy and in bringing the benefits of economic and social development to the world’s poor, with 800 million Commonwealth citizens living in official poverty.

Don McKinnon, 68, has been Secretary-General of the Commonwealth since April 2000. He had previously enjoyed a 21-year career in New Zealand politics, and in the 1990s became the country’s longest-serving Minister of Foreign Affairs and Trade.

This event is supported by the LSE Annual Fund.
