Welsh Centre for International Affairs
The Welsh Centre for International Affairs is a registered
charity based in Cardiff and working throughout Wales. Our vision
is that everyone in Wales contributes to creating a fair and
peaceful world. To achieve this, our mission is to inspire learning
and action on global issues.
The WCIA delivers and hosts a number of work programmes:
- Hub Cymru Africa, which is funded by the Welsh Government and
supports communication, coordination and capacity building for
groups and individuals working on Wales-Africa projects. The Hub is
a partnership between the WCIA, Fair Trade Wales, Sub-Saharan
Advisory Panel, Wales for Africa Health Links Network and
- Wales for Peace, a project to inspire a new generation of
internationalists through learning from Wales' peace heritage - the
individuals, communities and movements who have championed Wales'
peacebuilding role in the world, from the First World War to today.
This work is funded by the Heritage Lottery Fund and partners
include the National Library of Wales, Urdd Gobaith Cymru,
Aberystwyth University and Cardiff University.
