The AU@20: Progress, Problems and Prospects Towards Agenda 2063, Symposium

Sheraton Hotel in Pretoria, South Africa

The event aims to commemorate the 20th anniversary of the African Union (AU) and offers a critical assessment of the milestones that the regional institution has registered thus far. It becomes important to reflect on the challenges the AU has encountered and its future direction. This symposium is timely and pertinent, particularly in relation to the attainment of Agenda 2063-The Africa We Want. The symposium will bring together the AU community, leading scholars, policy practitioners, and civil society actors to engage the themes: African Renaissance and Regional Integration; AU Organs and Institutions; Governance, Democracy and Elections; Africa’s Peace and Security Architecture; Women and SDGs; AU External Relations; and Climate Change and Humanitarian Assistance, amongst many others. This continental symposium is co-organised by the University of Johannesburg’s (UJ), the Institute for Pan-African Thought and Conversation (IPATC), the Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA), based in Dakar, Senegal and TrustAfrica, also based in Dakar.
