History

Formed in 2002 the AU is a continental organisation consisting of 55 countries in Africa. The vision of the AU is a forward looking, dynamic and integrated Africa that will be fully realised through relentless struggle on several fronts and as a long-term endeavour. It has shifted its focus from supporting liberation movements in the African territories under colonialism and apartheid, as envisaged by its predecessor the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) since 1963, to an organisation spear-heading Africa’s development and integration.
