With existing literature focusing largely on Western perspectives of peace and their applications, and with the rise of increasingly more violent conflicts in international relations, a global understanding of peace is much needed. The recent Palgrave Handbook of Global Approaches to Peace gathers contributions from the authors of nearly 30 countries that combine conceptual, domestic, regional, systemic and alternative approaches to facilitate the integration of methodological orientations across geographical and intellectual circulations beyond the usual limited spaces. It is designed as a system of institutions, norms and policies, whose threefold purpose is to deal with conflict dynamics, tackle security challenges and promote sustainable development on the continent. At the time when the Organization of African Unity was transformed into the African Union AU , the latter has embedded its will and commitment to play a key role in peace and security on the African continent and beyond.

This article focuses on the establishment of the Panel of the Wise in the African Union peace and security architecture. It examines the basis, design and role of the Panel, and explores the possibilities that can be employed by the Panel in promoting the internalisation of peace and security in Africa.

The writer makes recommendations in respect of the membership, norms and mandate scope of the Panel, and expresses confidence that, if properly designed and operationalised, the Panel will make a difference in the peace and security architecture of the African Union. This article is based on the author's dissertation submitted in partial compliance with the requirements for the degree LLM Human Rights and Democratisation in Africa , Centre for Human Rights, University of Pretoria.

As of May , the Protocol had not entered into force.

Implementing Peace and Security Architecture (III): West Africa

The APSA evolved in the late s, when the African continent was confronted with severe crises such as the civil war in Somalia , which was ongoing since , and the genocide in Rwanda At the same time, the statutes of the Organisation of African Unity OAU did not allow an intervention in the inner affairs of another state. Two years later, the decision to establish the APSA was taken. The signature of the constitutive act of the AU [2] marked a turning point of inner-African relations. Therefore, the AU constitutive act is the first treaty under international law, which includes the right to militarily intervene in a third state based on humanitarian reasons, which is today often called a humanitarian intervention.

Recognising African Women’s Contributions to Peace and Security

Still, reform is essential to give the organisation new impetus, and is ever more urgent as insecurity worsens throughout the Sahel and Lake Chad regions. The Economic Community of West African States ECOWAS , now in its 41st year, has a formidable record, both in its efforts to enhance regional economic integration, its initial mandate, and to promote peace in a particularly turbulent region. Still, the organisation has demonstrated shortcomings requiring significant institutional change. Comprising fifteen states of great political, linguistic and economic diversity and spanning a vast geographic area from the Atlantic coast to the Sahara desert, ECOWAS has been the most sought-after African regional economic body in the field of peace and security in the past 25 years. The organisation, itself composed of fragile states, has been forced to put out fires within its own member states.

 Сьюзан. Она была потрясена. Прямо перед ней во всю стену был Дэвид, его лицо с резкими чертами. - Сьюзан, я хочу кое о чем тебя спросить.  - Звук его голоса гулко раздался в комнате оперативного управления, и все тут же замерли, повернувшись к экрану. - Сьюзан Флетчер, выйдете за меня замуж. В комнате зашушукались.

 Ты мне не веришь. Мужчины начали спорить. - У нас вирус. Затем раздался крик: - Нужно немедленно вызвать Джаббу. Послышались другие звуки, похожие на шум борьбы. ГЛАВА 55 - Ты уселся на мое место, осел.

 Директор в Южной Америке. - Извини. Я не могу этого сделать.  - Скрестив на груди руки, он вышел из ее кабинета.

Насколько опасен вирус. Джабба пристально посмотрел на директора и вдруг разразился смехом. - Вирус? - Его грубый хохот разнесся по подземелью.

Indeed, these visits to a continent that is composed of a diverse group of 54 countries with different challenges on the one hand, and plenty of opportunities on the other, reflect the growing attention towards Africa.
