Publications Section, Commonwealth Secretariat, Marlborough House, Pall Mall, London, SW1Y 5HX, UK

The Commonwealth Secretariat produces publications as part of its mission to 'work as a trusted partner for all Commonwealth people as a force for peace, democracy, equality and good governance; a catalyst for global consensus-building; and a source of assistance for sustainable development and poverty eradication.'

We publish a wide range of titles that provide development research, evidence-based policy advice, best practice and policy implementation strategies tailored to policy-makers, researchers, advisers and development practitioners in Commonwealth countries and small states.

The material produced covers policy issues, case studies and good practice promotion in areas of Commonwealth expertise, including globalisation and multilateral trade issues, export and enterprise development, education, gender, public service management and reform, law and human rights, and issues of concern to small states. We also produce a number of reference manuals in conjunction with commercial publishers, such as The Commonwealth Yearbook. For full details of material published by other publishers under licence, including publisher contact details, see below.

Our publications are available to buy through this website and also from booksellers and distributors worldwide. You can find a full list of distributors by clicking on the Stockists / Distributors tab.
