Commonwealth Eminent Persons Group
Several Eminent Persons Groups, abbreviated to EPG, have been founded by Commonwealth of Nations.
An EPG was established at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting 1985 to investigate apartheid in South Africa, and reported ahead of the special Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting 1986. They recommended economic sanctions against South Africa.
The latest was founded by the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting 2009 at Trinidad and Tobago in November 2009 to report at the Commonwealth Heads of Government Meeting 2011. The members of this EPG were:
- Abdullah Ahmad Badawi (Malaysia, Chairperson)

- Asma Jahangir (Pakistan)
- Samuel Kavuma (Uganda, Commonwealth Youth Caucus)
- Michael Kirby (Australia)
- Graça Machel (Mozambique)
- Sir Malcolm Rifkind (UK)
- Sir Ronald Sanders (Guyana)
- Hugh Segal (Canada)
