Independent African monitoring report aimed at enhancing public engagement on peace and security in Africa presented to European Union officials

The African Union’s (AU) Peace and Security Protocol encourages non-governmental organisations to participate in efforts aimed at promoting peace, security and stability in Africa and feed information into the official decision-making processes of the AU’s Peace and Security Council (PSC). To gain access to African perspectives on peace and security, ECDPM and ISS organised a launch event for the report on 25 November 2009 in Brussels for key stakeholders.

The Addis Ababa based Institute for Security Studies recently launched a monthly Peace and Security Council Report which seeks to provide independent, publicly available and informative analysis on the work of the PSC with a view to increasing capacities to be able to effectively engage with the PSC’s work. Peace and security issues in Africa are also of increasing relevance to Europe as recognised in the Joint Africa-EU Strategy and EU-Africa Partnership on Peace and Security as well as in Europe’s support for the African Peace and Security Architecture. To gain access to African perspectives on peace and security, ECDPM and ISS organised a launch event for the report on 25 November in Brussels for key stakeholders.
