Venue: Sheraton Hotel in Pretoria, South Africa
Date: 2-4 November 2022
The Institute for Pan-African Thought and Conversation (IPATC), based at the University of Johannesburg (UJ), TrustAfrica and the Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa (CODESRIA), are jointly organizing a continental symposium on the theme: “The African Union at 20: Progress, Problems and Prospects”.
The symposium will be held at the Sheraton Hotel in Pretoria, South Africa on 2-4 November 2022. The symposium is part and parcel of the commemoration of the 20th Anniversary of the African Union (AU). The AU was officially founded and launched on 9 July 2002 in Durban, South Africa. The Union took over the mantle for the pursuit of continental unity and integration from the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) which had existed since 1963. Both the OAU and AU are key institutional architectures and historical landmarks for the advancement of Pan-Africanism and African Renaissance, especially from the perspective of state-driven continental integration.
