From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

The Commonwealth unification movement is a largely unorganised socio-political movement advocating closer political affiliation between member states of the Commonwealth of Nations. In some cases, this movement seeks the eventual formation of some type of supranational, federalist or economic union within the Commonwealth.[1]

These movements exist most prominently within Western countries. They most commonly support the possibility of union between developed members of the Commonwealth, generally excluding states that are under-developed or politically unstable.[2] The states most commonly associated with these movements are Australia, Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, for which the acronym CANZUK is utilised.[3]

In the UK, the movement is sometimes seen as a possible alternative to the European Union.

Various names have been proposed for the possibility of such a union, such as the Commonwealth Confederation and the United Commonwealth.[4]
