APAM was established in 1994 to facilitate

the exchange of information and knowledge

on public administration among Commonwealth

countries and beyond. The origins of CAPAM lie in

the initiative to define and promote the practical

requirements of good governance, just and honest

government and the fundamental political values

outlined in the Declaration of the Commonwealth

Heads of Government at its meeting in Harare,

Zimbabwe in 1991. Since inception in 2004, CAPAM

has grown to a network of over 1100 members

across the Commonwealth countries.

As a non-profit association, CAPAM represents

an international network of 1000 senior public

servants, Heads of Government, leading academics

and researchers located in over 50 different

countries across the Commonwealth. The mission

is to support good governance through the

exchange of ideas knowledge and experiences and

is achieving this by delivering in-depth learning

programmes, convening conferences on emerging

issues, and publishing case studies and research
