 The African Union (AU) has firmly dedicated itself towards Agenda 2063 and acknowledged that a fundamental paradigm shift is required to seize upon the momentum en route towards 2063. AU policymakers acknowledge that “in order to achieve the African Union’s vision of ‘An Integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens and representing a dynamic force in the global arena’, significantly more action is still required on a number of fronts”. In their 50th Anniversary Solemn Declaration, the Heads of State and Government of the African Union (AU), while acknowledging past successes and challenges, rededicated themselves to the continent’s accelerated development and technological progress. They laid down vision and eight ideals to serve as pillars for the continent in the foreseeable future, which Agenda 2063 will translate into concrete objectives, milestones, goals, targets and actions/measures. Agenda 2063 strives to enab............

 This special edition is dedicated to the rising African maritime security landscape that served to not only draw international attention to piracy, but to the wider ambit of maritime security off Africa and on the world’s oceans in general. While piracy became the primary focus of decision-makers and a defining threat to safety and security at sea off Africa’s eastern shorelines in particular, several other threats coexist with the salient piracy threat. From a threat perspective, piracy surely dominates the African maritime security agenda, but when one views the response spectrum the measures to fight piracy it reflects an extensive response ladder that includes international organisations, regional and sub-regional actors such as the United Nations, the European Union, the African Union and the South African Development Community at the sub-regional level. At the state level several countries independently deployed (and still do) naval vessels off the Horn of Afri............

 The year 2013 marks the 50th anniversary celebration of the formation of the Organization of African Unity (OAU). It will also be a little more than a decade since the formation of the African Union (AU), which seeks to promote “an integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens and representing a dynamic force in global arena”. Consequently, the Heads of State declared the year 2013 the Year of Pan-Africanism and the African Renaissance.[1] The 21st Ordinary Session of the Summit of the AU also took place from 19-27th May 2013 under the theme “Pan Africanism and African Renaissance”.  As declared by the AU, the anniversary is expected to facilitate and celebrate African narratives of past, present and future that will enthuse and energize the African population and use their constructive energy to accelerate a forward looking agenda of Pan-Africanism and renaissance in the 21st century. It provides a unique opportunity, and co............

 The African Union (AU) celebrated its tenth year of existence in 2012. Having achieved some success in certain areas, the AU’s agenda for the next decade would require far more focus and determination if it wants to achieve its numerous objectives. The AU is also entering a new era in the wake of the Arab Spring on the continent and with the election of the new chairperson of the AU Commission, Dr Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma. With this, the AU is set for some continuities and change. Despite laudable advances during its first decade, the AU has experienced difficulties in some instances to uphold its right and duty to devise ‘African Solutions to African Problems’. This significantly undermined the AU’s stature on the continent and in the broader international community and places considerable pressure on the continental body in the next decade. It is against this background, as well as in commemoration of the fiftieth anniversary of the establishment of the A............

The African Union (AU) has placed important emphasis on the construction of a robust peace, security and governance architecture. There has been considerable progress in developing the blueprint, breaking ground and laying the first critical foundations upon which the continental body will construct the necessary structures to realise African integration and unity. The first critically important phases of this ambitious endeavour have already been initiated. The Decision of the 15th Ordinary Summit of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government of the African Union (Assembly/AU/Dec.304 (XV), mandated the African Union Commission (AUC) to put in place a Pan-African Architecture on Governance. It is anticipated that the Architecture would provide the process and mechanism of enhancing policy dialogue, convergence, coherence, and harmonization amongst AU Organs, institutions and Member States as a way of speeding up the integration process on the continent (UNECA 2011). Given this manda............
