At the Commonwealth Games on the Gold Coast in April, athletes from countries that were once a part of the British Empire will battle for gold-but is the Commonwealth of Nations more than a legacy of another age? At a time of geopolitical uncertainty, the Commonwealth is poised to play a major role as a values-based network that represents a third of the world's population. Whether this group can exercise real power and influence will be determined in 2018. The old empires are long gone, but in the wake of Brexit and the rise of China and India, the shape of a new world order remains unclear. Commonwealth Now features writers from around the world who explore the contemporary experience of Commonwealth citizens: reconciling the past, confronting new challenges, and opening new exchanges to create a sustainable and equitable future.
