The African Union (AU) is the most important association of African countries. It was founded in 2002 and is the successor to the Organization of African Unity (OAU). Today, all the internationally recognised countries of Africa are members of the AU, including the Saharan Arab Democratic Republic (Western Sahara). The organisation has its headquarters in Addis Ababa, the capital of Ethiopia.
The African Union is a decisive driving force for the political and economic development of Africa. Its primary purpose is African integration, in other words, the promotion of cooperation on the basis of coordination and solidarity among African states, with a view to achieving peace, security and prosperity for all the people of the continent.
In 2013, the members of the AU adopted their Agenda 2063, a common vision for Africa’s development over the next 50 years. In the Agenda 2063, the AU members laid down the following aspirations:
A prosperous Africa based on inclusive growth and sustainable development
An integrated continent, politically united, based on the ideals of Pan-Africanism and the vision of Africa’s Renaissance
An Africa of good governance, democracy, respect for human rights, justice and the rule of law
A peaceful and secure Africa
An Africa with a strong cultural identity, common heritage, values and ethics
An Africa whose development is people-driven, relying on the potential offered by people, especially its women and youth
An Africa as a strong, united, and influential global player and partner.
