Established in 1960 as an independent non-profit association, the Africa Institute’s mission is to collect, process, interpret and disseminate information on African affairs.

The Institute focusses primarily on the political, socio-economic, international and development issues facing contemporary Africa.

Whether you are a decision maker in the public or private sector, a member of the diplomatic community, a journalist in the electronic and print media, an academic or student in a university or college, a teacher or pupil in a school, or a member of the general public, the Africa Institute can enrich you by increasing your knowledge and understanding of the fascinating continent of Africa.
