Book launch: What has the AU achieved over the last 20 years?


When the African Union (AU) was launched in July 2002, its founders believed the organisation could lead Africa’s search for unity, economic development, stability and representation on the world stage. While the AU has made commendable strides in these areas, most of its ideals and goals remain unfulfilled.

As the continental body marks its 20-year anniversary, this seminar discusses the findings of a new book which analyses the AU’s achievements. Written by more than 22 African experts, the volume critically examines progress, challenges and future prospects.

This book launch is co-hosted by the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) and the Embassy of Canada in Addis Ababa.

Moderator: Amb Salah Siddig Hammad, Head, AGA-APSA Secretariat, AU Commission
