High Level Dialogue and Strategic Thinking Session on Governance of African Armed Forces

Policy Brief n° 1
Africa Governance Institute
April 2013

The general objective of the high level policy dialogue and strategic thinking session was to reflect on the conditions and opportunities for adapting the governance of the armed forces to democratic governance in the spirit of the African Charter on Democracy, Elections and Governance.

The specific objectives were to :

  • Find ways to improve the governance of the armed and security forces, and thus contribute to the implementation of the African Charter on Democracy, Elections and Governance ;
  • Identify the mechanisms and processes for reducing the risk of corruption in the armed and security forces, especially by promoting the culture of transparency, accountability and democratic control ;
  • Propose areas for action research that would inform efforts to reform the armed and security forces, so that they are better prepared for the new security challenges, political changes and socio-economic problems at the continental and global levels ;
  • Contribute to thinking on ways of articulating the work of the African Peace and Security Architecture and that of the African Governance Architecture.
