EUROPEAN UNION (EU)

The close EU-AU cooperation on peace and security has become a driving force for the development of a fully-fledged Africa-EU strategic partnership, culminating in a comprehensive Joint Africa-EU Strategy (JAES) adopted in December 2007 in Lisbon, including a First Action Plan and in particular the Partnership on Peace and Security. The priorities of this unique partnership foresee an increased political dialogue on peace and security matters, the full operationalisation of the APSA and predictable funding enabling the AU and Regional Economic Mechanisms (RECs and RMs) which constitute the building blocks of the APSA to plan and conduct PSOs on the African continent.
