  • African Diplomacy: the case of Gambia

    GambiaOften the news circulating on the most read newspapers and the most watched/listened broadcasters convey the image of an extremely poor Africa: its endless civil wars, epidemics such as AIDS, ebola, malaria, etc. A continent where population growth is a threat. People constantly fleeing war or poverty by migrating to neighboring countries or to Europe, etc.

    The purpose of this article is not to contradict this image conveyed by certain media, but rather to highlight the other face of Africa that is not often shown. It is an Africa in search of its own unity. An Africa that struggles to find the most appropriate solutions to its problems. We could share several initiatives in this direction, but we would rather analyze the Gambian experience as a living witness of an Africa in search of negotiated solutions, specifically in the area of conflict resolution, as described in the document of the African Union: 'Vision 2064: an Africa without the sound of weapons.’

  • Morocco rejoins the African Union after 33 years

    Morocco in its natural family: a step towards the unity of the continent

    Logo AUSo often African news is about a suffering Africa. On January 31, 2017, Africa became an Africa that sings thanks to the return of Morocco to the African Union family after more than 30 years outside the continental organization.

    Indeed, the African Union is a continental organization created by the African leaders in Addis Ababa in 1963 to strengthen the unity of the continent and lead the peoples of the continent towards an African renaissance.
