African Union

Harnessing its potential for peace and security

This project aimed to collaborate and work closely with the African Union Commission to support sustainable and enduring peace via three of its liaison offices.

The African Union has the potential to make a significant contribution to peace in Africa, especially in Côte d’Ivoire, Liberia, Sierra Leone (overseen by the Liberia liaison office) and Sudan.

We brought together governments, civil society organisations, academia, the media and others to foster greater interaction with these liaison offices and build a culture of democratic governance.

This helped the three liaison offices and other stakeholders to jointly identify challenges to peace and develop appropriate mitigation strategies.
