AfREC ensures its work has appropriate impact on society and policy through ongoing consultation with key stakeholders in academia, government, industry, the not-for- profit and community sectors and via regular public engagement events.

Based in Perth, Australia’s ‘gateway’ with Africa across the Indian Ocean, the Centre helps to build a wider constituency for Australia-Africa relations by deepening research and education partnerships and creating new opportunities for engagement between the two continents and their peoples

The Centre underpins the UWA Africa Engagement Strategy and supports the Africa-related work of the University’s flagship institutes including the Institute of Agriculture, Oceans Institute and Public Policy Institute
