The forthcoming James Webb Space Telescope (JWST) will revolutionize galaxy evolution studies from the epoch of reionisation to the present day. In particular, a new era will be open for mid-IR astronomy, as the JWST Mid-Infrared Instrument (MIRI) will improve by an order of magnitude the sensitivity and angular resolution that can currently be achieved at these wavelengths (5-28 microns). In this talk, I will focus on the new breadth of possibilities that JWST/MIRI will offer for AGN identification and characterisation up to high redshifts, and the implications for our understanding of the role of AGN within galaxy evolution. I will also discuss the complementarity of other JWST instruments in these AGN studies.
