The African Union and its Institutions

SKU: ZAUI
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.

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.

 
 In praise of The African Union and its Institutions:
 

"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."
Ambassador Welile Nhlapo, Representative of the Republic of South Africa to the United States

 "An important work which shows the central role of the AU in multilateral African peacemaking and peacekeeping efforts to bring long-lasting peace and stability to the beloved continent."

Ambassador Kingsley Mamabolo, South Africa’s Special Envoy to the Great Lakes Region

 "An informative publication which joins scholars, activists and policy makers into a discourse that has been considered for a long time an exclusive preserve of governments and diplomats."

Salim Ahmed Salim, Former Secretary General of the OAU and Special Envoy of the AU for Darfur
