Town Hall 2: AU Reforms – Breathing New Life and Purpose into the African Union!

November 24 @ 2:00 pm - 3:30 pm

In this townhall we will discuss the current round of AU reforms (happening this weekend 16-18 Nov), especially as President Kagame of Rwanda prepares to hand over the chair position to President al-Sisi of Egypt. We will also consider and enumerate all the ways in which the African Union has in recent time failed to perform it’s mandate and mediate in various pertinent issues including the issue of authoritarianism and polictical supression across the continent, adoption of term limits, furthering the efforts to ease trade barriers and transport links within and beyond regional blocs, amongst others. Join us for a hearty discussion, and come and let us brainstorm what our ideal African Union should look like!
Check out this article as you prepare, https://www.news24.com/Africa/News/african-leaders-meet-for-last-push-on-au-reforms-20181115 we will share more on our facebook page!
