The African Union at Ten: Problems, Progress, and Prospects
(Policy Brief No. 13)
The year 2013 marks the 50th anniversary of post-independence pan-Africanism with the birth of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) in May 1963. As the golden jubilee is celebrated, this report reflects on the hopes for an "African Renaissance" embodied by the continental body's successor, the African Union (AU), and the challenges that it faces in fulfilling its role of promoting political unity, democratic governance, and economic development on the continent. This policy brief is based on a colloquium, jointly hosted by CCR and the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung (FES), Berlin, Germany, from 30 to 31 August 2012 in Berlin.
