APPG Reports

The APPG has published 11 full policy and research reports on topics varying from Democracy in Africa to the Government’s Bilateral Aid Review, the most recent of which is on Africa-UK Trade and Development Cooperation Relations in the Transitional and Post Brexit Period launched in February 2017.  The Government has responded to our reports in broadly the same way that Ministers respond to Select Committee reports, and important changes in UK Government policy have resulted from this – for instance in the past, a quadrupling of our aid for people with HIV/Aids in Africa, a new Bribery Act and funding for Parliamentary capacity building in Africa. 

The APPG additionally produces shorter reports based on APPG activities, for example the APPG’s submissions to Select Committee Inquiries, the most recent in February 2018 where we submitted evidence to the International Trade Committe of the House of Commons and to the Trade Bill Committe based on our work on UK-Africa trade post-Brexit. Prior to that, in October 2015 we submitted to the International Development Committee on the UK's response the the Ebola outbreak in West Africa and in March 2016 to their Nigeria inquiry following the report from our Chair, Chi Onwurah MP who had recently returned from a trade mission to Nigeria.

Security and Africa: An Update
November 2012

A collection of essays on developments in the field of security and Africa since the UK Government’s 2010 Strategic Defence and Security Review. The past two years since the SDSR have seen a number of key developments related to security and Africa, most notably the Arab Spring in the north of the continent, but also across several regions of sub‐Saharan Africa, and in the broader political environment. These developments have critical implications for security in Africa and elsewhere and we feel it is important that these issues, and what they mean for the UK and Europe, are considered carefully. This update highlights specific regions where the situation has moved on, as well as a selection of thematic issues which were not expanded on in the original report. We do not discuss explicitly the issues which are examined in the APPG’s previous report, in particular transnational threats such as piracy, terrorism, organised crime and drug trafficking, and migration, but direct readers to our previous report for a review of these issues; the lessons are very much still valid. We have invited a selection of the world’s experts to write short essays on these subjects, which serve as an introduction to the key debates, highlighting the breadth of issues of relevance to security and Africa.
