The Royal African Society with the APPG has published 11 full policy and research reports, 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 some important changes in UK Government policy have followed our reccomendations.

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 the APPG & RAS submitted evidence to the International Trade Committee of the House of Commons and to the Trade Bill Committee based on the work on UK-Africa trade post-Brexit. Prior to that, in October 2015 the APPG 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 APPG Chair, Chi Onwurah MP who had recently returned from a trade mission to Nigeria.
