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.

Presentation - Call for Papers - Stability and Security in Africa : The Role of Hard and Soft Power

 Al Akhawayn University, Ifrane

Defining power is complex and ambiguous but understanding its elements and implications on national and foreign policies remains central to the study of international relations. Both ‘hard’ and ‘soft’ powers are employed to pursue political and strategic goals through military, economic, diplomatic and others ways of conquering hearts and minds, to create convincing incentives and exercise influence.

Trump and Trade

OCP Policy Center, Rabat

While the first months of 2017 in Morocco were characterized by the country’s historic diplomatic feat in re-joining the African Union, and its positive willingness of integrating the Economic Community of Western African States (ECOWAS), it is safe to say that the atmosphere was quite different in the Northern hemisphere. For both the European Union and the US, 2016 has proven to be a grim year, particularly in light of the populist wave that swept through the West. This has led the UK to opt for Brexit, a situation that has come as a surprise to the international community, and Americans to vote for a businessman as their 45th president. Donald J. Trump, the said businessman, has no previous political experience, and ran a controversial campaign that places protectionism at the heart of his economic strategy. This, in conjunction with the general leitmotif of making America great again, will make for a dangerous rollercoaster ride in the land of uncertainty.

Supporting a Stable and Durable Regional Security Environment in North Africa

London, United Kingdom

While Europe is struggling with one of its worst migrant crisis in modern times, government officials, policy-makers, and the international community are increasingly urged to look at other strategies to tackle this increasingly pressing humanitarian and security dilemma. Controversial methods of closing down the borders and deporting illegal enterers are just not enough to deal with the reality of the push factors that represent the true motives behind these migration flows. With development, stability and security increasingly seen as being interconnected, this conference series will explore the economic, political and security challenges to Africa and ask whether it is time for Europe and the UK following the Brexit, to treat Africa as more than simply a security issue to be managed.
