Promoting peace, preventing conflict

Assistance to member states with adhering to the Harare Commonwealth Declaration is a key component of the Commonwealth Secretariat's work to promote just and stable government and to prevent internal conflicts. The ‘good offices’ role of the Secretary-General is the Commonwealth's primary mechanism for addressing political problems and conflicts where they do arise.
