Written by eminent scholars on Africa and practitioners who have worked in or with the African Union, The African Union and its Institutions brings together the analysis and research of 17 largely Pan-African scholars, policy-makers, practitioners and civil society representatives.
It is a particularly timely and welcome addition to the pioneering literature about this young and potentially powerful institution. It presents a positive but realistic picture of the African Union, while diagnosing several key challenges. The AU has established an impressive array of institutions to deal with Africa’s security and governance problems – this book contains robust scholarship that allows reflection on what needs to be done to fulfil the noble objectives that the AU has set for itself.
"This book is a welcome and timely intervention by academics and practitioners on the main challenges facing the AU in implementing the Constitutive Act. An analysis of the current institutional capacity of the AU will contribute immensely towards the debate on the Union Government. This book is a must-read for those interested in regional integration."
