Elected at the January 2016 African Union (AU) summit, the 15 new members of the AU Peace and Security Council started their work at the beginning of April. In the face of many challenges, what real impact can they have on peace and security in Africa?
Meanwhile, new elections for commissioners will take place at the upcoming AU summit in Kigali in June. Current AU Commission Chairperson Nkosazana Dlamini Zuma will not be running for a second term.
What will her legacy be and what has she achieved in her four years at the helm?
This View on Africa briefing will be presented by Liesl Louw-Vaudran, a consultant for the ISS’ PSC Report. She will discuss what lies ahead for AU PSC members and will reflect on Dlamini Zuma’s tenure as AU Commission Chairperson.
