The United Commonwealth Society is a cross-party organization dedicated to encouraging closer diplomatic, economic, and cultural ties between the member states of the Commonwealth of Nations. In particular, the UCS advocates closer economic and political links between the Commonwealth Realms, the sixteen nations that have Queen Elizabeth II as Head of State.
We believe the Commonwealth Realms have the potential to form a global alliance of like-minded countries, with a shared language, history and culture. Such a union would be home to more than 130 million people, have a territorial presence in most corners of the globe, possess significant military and diplomatic power, and be a major player in many sectors of the global economy.
By speaking with a common voice on the world stage, the Commonwealth Realms could maximise their collective and individual influence and opportunities, benefit from a better footing when interacting with other significant powers such as the United States, European Union, and rising Asian countries, and better ensure their shared values continue to be heard in a changing world.
