African Peace and Security Annual Conference - APSACO

African Union: What are the Possible Options for Strategic Autonomy ?

OCP Policy Center, Rabat

The African Union (AU), since its creation, has taken a predominant and active role in matters related to the continent. It therefore took an active stance in the definition of the economic and political destiny of African nations. To enable it to play such a preponderant role, the Union can count on an original institutional framework, an African Peace and Security Architecture (APSA) and a secretariat (commission) which serves as a boosting coordination body for the various common policies of member states. This institutional metamorphosis, makes perfect sense when analysed in the context of the desire to increase the strategic resilience, the pre-eminence of the African Union and sub-regional organizations, the setup of continental free trade zones, the priority that is given to the south-south cooperation and to triangular cooperation and the institutionalization of international partnerships in the unique diplomatic agenda of the African Union.
