On the 21st of October 2009, the European Centre for Development Policy Management (ECDPM) and the Nordic Institute for Africa (NAI)will organise an informal high level multi-stakeholder seminar on 21 October in Uppsala, on the brink of the European Development Days (22-24 October) in Stockholm. The meeting is organised with the support of the Swedish EU Presidency and in close coordination with the African Union (AU).
The seminar “‘Building the African Union institutional architecture – Progress achieved, new perspectives and possible support by the EU’ aims to take stock of the record of the AU institutional architecture, its ongoing reforms and future challenges ahead and the roles that the EU could possibly play in support of the AU institutional architecture.
Invited participants will include a multi-stakeholder group of a maximum of 50. Participation only by invitation.
