African Union book cover

The African Union’s Emerging Peace and Security Regime

Published: May 4, 2005

This monograph offers a timely exploration of the capacity of the AU, other African regional organisations, and members of the international community to deliver on their responsibility to protect. It draws on case studies of the AU and other international engagements in Burundi and Darfur, Sudan, to explore the opportunities and challenges for operationalising the responsibility to protect in Africa. The monograph concludes that while the AU appears to possess the political will to deliver on its reinvigorated peace and security agenda – at least in Burundi and Darfur – it continues to face enormous constraints.
