This Discussion Paper provides an analysis of the promotion of peace and security by African regional organisations through diplomacy, mediation and Peace Support Operations (PSOs) activities under the African Peace and Security Architecture (APSA). This work is rooted in a longer-term engagement of ECDPM through the APSA Impact Analysis project, supported by the German government through the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), and in collaboration with the Institute for Peace and Security Studies (IPSS) at the University of Addis Ababa.

This paper is directed towards a wider audience interested in the African Union (AU) and in the efforts by African regional organisations to promote peace and security on the continent. This work is also addressed to policy makers and practitioners seeking an update on existing information or a different lens to existing knowledge. The findings presented are the result of intensive desk research, covering the years 2013 to 2015.
