LAUNCH FUNCTION FOR THE ROUND TABLE SPECIAL ISSUE ON ‘FREEDOM OF INFORMATION IN THE COMMONWEALTH’ 21 December 2015, 4.00-6.00 pm, India International Centre, New Delhi
Founded in 1910, The Round Table, Britain's oldest international affairs journal, provides analysis and commentary on all aspects of international affairs affecting the Commonwealth. The journal is the major source for coverage of policy issues concerning the contemporary Commonwealth and its role in international affairs, with occasional articles on themes of historical interest. It also carries opinion pieces on topical issues. The Round Table has for many years been a repository of informed scholarship, opinion, and judgement regarding both international relations in general, and the Commonwealth in particular, with authorship and readership drawn from the worlds of government, business, finance and academe.
The Commonwealth Human Rights Initiative is an international non-partisan, non-governmental organisation formed to support human rights and, in particular, to support the implementation of the Harare Declaration in the countries of the Commonwealth of Nations. It has undertaken pioneering work in the promotion of Freedom of Information and works to raise public awareness about the value of the right to information. It collaborates with community based groups, catalyses the development of networks of concerned civil society organisations and seeks out the specific information needs of the people and communicates them to policy makers in various ways.
