Policy Reports

The Royal African Society with the APPG has published 12 full policy and research reports, the most recent being Visa Problems for African Visitors to the UK launched in July 2019.  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.
