The African Union: the African Governance Architecture and the Charter for Democracy, Elections and Good Governance
This policy brief analyses why the African Union (AU) and national level stakeholders operate as they do, looking at the African Governance Architecture (AGA) and the African Charter for Democracy, Elections and Good Governance (ACDEG). It is based on a background paper that was prepared in March 2017.
This work is part of ECDPM's PEDRO project (‘The political economy of dynamics of regional organisations in Africa’), which looks into the political economy dynamics of 17 regional organisations in Africa. The study, carried out with support from the German ministry for economic cooperation and development (BMZ), will try to understand the actors and factors that shape how regional organisations play their role in promoting regional integration and cooperation.
