Peace and Security Council Report No 75

Meetings between the PSC and the EU Political and Security Committee are an opportunity to strengthen AU-EU relations.

Resolving the political impasse in Madagascar has been described as a success, but poverty and a lack of capacity in the government are hindering the process of rebuilding the country.

The way the PSC dealt with the recent crisis in Burkina Faso once again put the AU’s notion of subsidiarity of sub-regional bodies to the test.

In an exclusive interview, Martin Kobler, the outgoing head of the UN mission in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, speaks to the PSC Report about the future of the mission and the need for credible elections in 2016.

The publication of the PSC Report is made possible through support from the Government of the Swiss Confederation, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg, the government of New Zealand and the Hanns Seidel Stiftung.
