Tackling the Debt Crisis

Tackling the Debt Crisis ISG AS an international political forum, the Commonwealth is probably one of those very nebulous institutions today whose impact on the policy-makers of its member countries is best not assessed, for any such attempt is unlikely to yield much. That such a forum has, all the same, survived for so long may, for some, only go to prove how institutions have a way of outliving their usefulness. A more positive way of looking at the continuation of the Commonwealth is to view it not as a policy-making institution but as a body that serves to influence thinking on world issues, economic as well as political, of not only its member countries but also non-members. This it seeks to do less through the meetings of ministers and other functionaries from its member countries and more through the studies it commissions on various important world issues. It is this aspect of the Commonwealth's functioning that has come into the forefront more and more in recent years.
