Based in London, The Commonwealth Secretariat was established in 1965 and it works to facilitate consultation and cooperation among member governments and countries. As part of their mission, the organization also conducts research on germane policy issues in member countries and also provides technical assistance in the arena of social and economic development. On the site's homepage, visitors can view "Top Stories" updates and also take in the "Around The Commonwealth" feature, which contains images culled from member countries and first-hand coverage of events going on in countries such as Papua New Guinea and Ghana. Visitors seeking specific information (including policy reports) should make their way to the bottom of the homepage, where they can explore such themes as human rights, economics, gender, law, sustainability, along with seven other areas.
