African Union (AU) – Intermediate Committee
Established in 2002 to replace the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), the AU is a continental union comprising 55 countries on the African continent. The AU seeks to spearhead Africa’s development and integration, through achieving greater unity and solidarity between African countries, promoting peace and security on the continent and advancing democratic principles and institutions, among others. Current discussions centre around Agenda 2063, which is the AU’s strategic framework for the socioeconomic development of the continent for the next 50 years. In OxIMUN, this committee will convene as the annual AU summit.
