Contents Introduction -- International relations theory : a brief overview -- The commonwealth brand : membership and identities -- Two case studies : Mozambique and Rwanda -- Mapping commonwealth peripheries : a classification and analysis of commonwealth pre-accession states
Summary This book examines Commonwealth identity through the lens of its membership criteria, its recent enlargement and its constant reincarnation. In so doing it exposes various shortcomings in current thinking about international relations and the Commonwealth. Furthermore, it reveals how a number of turning points in the Commonwealth's history have shaped its membership rules and illustrates how the official Commonwealth still has the potential to expand and develop to best reflect an organisation that represents a third of the world's population
