The Welsh Centre for International Affairs' 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 pursues its mission by way of the following organisational aims:

  • To raise awareness of global issues among the people of Wales.
  • To help people, especially young people, develop the skills they need to understand and confront these issues.
  • To act as a forum for individuals and organisations in Wales to exchange ideas, build partnerships, and work towards common goals in line with the WCIA's values.

The WCIA believes:

  • That everyone has a contribution to make through active global citizenship

  • In the principles of human rights, international law, peace, tolerance and international cooperation promoted by the United Nations

  • In the power of education, positive engagement and dialogue between individuals and organisations as means to work towards those principles

  • That sustainability is a vital part of all efforts to ensure a safer and more secure world for future generations

  • In the importance of fair treatment of individuals, transparency and accountability in all its affairs
