The PSC Report is an initiative of the Institute for Security Studies (ISS) through its office in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. It was established in 2009 with the principal aim of supporting and complementing the work of the African Union (AU) and its Peace and Security Council (PSC) through the provision of regular, independent and research-based information on and analysis of the PSC and its activities. The PSC Report offers the wider constituency of the AU, as well as African civil society organisations, the media and the international diplomatic community a reliable means of following and tracking the work of the PSC.
The PSC Report accomplishes these objectives through the publication of regular reports on issues that are either on the PSC’s agenda or that deserve its attention. Through its webpage dedicated exclusively to the ISS’ work on the PSC, the PSC Report also offers regular updates on current and emerging agenda items of the PSC.
The PSC Report has no institutional relationship with the AU or the PSC. However, it works in close collaboration with the AU Peace and Security Department, the Secretariat of the PSC and member states of the PSC.
