Welcome to Afri

Afri’s vision is of a more just, peaceful, equal and sustainable world.  Afri seeks to inform debate and influence policy and practice in Ireland and internationally on human rights, peace, global justice, and sustainability issues.

Afri particularly responds to injustice caused by militarisation, and by environmental destruction and resource depletion.  We do this through analysis, education and action in solidarity with marginalised people in the ‘Global South’ and also in Ireland and elsewhere in the so-called ‘developed world’.
