Launch of the African Governance Platform

The department of Political of the African Union Commission, is organising the above-mentionned event in response to the Decision of the 18th Executive Council of the African Union endorsing the strenghtening of the African Governance Architecture, through the launch of the Governance Platform as an informal and non-decision making mechanism to :

  • foster exchange of information ;
  • facilitate the elaboration of common positions on governance ;
  • strengthen the capacity of Africa to speak with one voice EX.CL/619 (XVIII).

The decision also requested the AUC to undertake periodic reviews and coordinate the monitoring of compliance to AU instruments on Shared Values.

Within the framework of article 44-49 of the African Charter on Democracy, Elections and Governance, the long term strategic objective of the Platform is to act as the central coordinating mechanism for monitoring compliance and implementation of agreed governance standards.
