CAPAM recognizes the 25th anniversary of the Commonwealth of Nations’ October 1991 Harare Commonwealth Declaration in Zimbabwe, which laid the groundwork for CAPAM’s genesis. The Declaration pledged, in part, that its members would work with renewed vigour on priority areas such as “democracy, democratic processes and institutions that reflect national circumstances, the rule of law and the independence of the judiciary, just and honest government”. Armed with this clear direction, and with increasing recognition that public service administrators and managers could benefit from frequent information exchange, the late Sir Kenneth Stowe chaired the pan-Commonwealth Steering Committee of founding members that would ultimately lead towards the formation of CAPAM.
