Our Mission

The Ramphal Institute’s mission is to advance knowledge and education in the Commonwealth in the policy areas of social, economic, governance and the environment for the benefit of both the public and policy makers.

The Institute carries out analysis and studies within these areas and disseminates the results throughwebsite and printed publications, lectures, conferences, seminars and workshops.

The Institute capitalises on the unique advantages of an English-speaking Commonwealth of 54 states as a forum to facilitate communication, understanding, and the sharing of ideas and experience between governments, businesses and civil society.

The Commonwealth is a voluntary association of 54 member states that co-operate and consult with each to promote the well-being of their peoples and their shared goals in democracy and development.
