Welcome to the new Africa APPG website

The Africa APPG was launched in January 2003 by Hugh Bayley MP and Lord Lea of Crondall to focus on issues which affect Africa as a continent and to raise the profile of Africa and its development in Parliament. The Group has been at the centre of the increased interest in Africa in Westminster and Whitehall over the last five years.

The Africa APPG holds regular meetings and briefings with high profile speakers, encourages debate within the Houses of Parliament and publishes regular reports on specific issues affecting the continent. Recent reports include Land in Zimbabwe: Past Mistakes, Future Prospects and Security and Africa: Submission to the 2010 Strategic Defense and Security Review.

For more information about the Africa APPG please contact the group’s research coordinator Victoria Crawford on victoria.crawford@parliament.uk 

The administration of the Africa APPG is provided by the Royal African Society. For more information about the Royal African Society please visit their website www.royalafricansociety.org
