The aim of this AHRC funded project is to produce a unique digital research resource on the oral history of the Commonwealth since 1965. When completed, it will include over 60 major interviews with leading figures in the recent history of the organisation. These interviews contain the views of a wide range of Commonwealth actors – politicians, diplomats and civil servants – on the evolution of the Commonwealth and its activities since the creation of the Commonwealth Secretariat in 1965.
All interviews are available in electronic transcript form, searchable by participant’s name, subject theme (e.g apartheid; development), country, or by key word free text search in the search box (above right). For more information on how you can use and cite these interviews, please follow this link.
