The European Business Council for Africa

8th February, 9:30-11:30
Skylight Hotel, Bole, Addis Ababa - Online

Despite the African Union’s (AU) constructive role in addressing conflicts on the continent in 2022, tangible outcomes have been few. Where progress has been made, the risks of backsliding remain. In 2023, the AU is expected to step up efforts to deal with ongoing and emerging issues afflicting the continent.

This hybrid seminar will reflect on what the AU should prioritise this year to deliver on its mandate and reform agenda.

Simultaneous English-French interpretation will be provided for this event.

Moderator: Dr Paul-Simon Handy, Regional Director for East Africa and Representative to the AU, Institute for Security Studies (ISS)
