Silencing the Guns in Africa: the Nexus between Peace, Security - Africa Week 2015
12 Oct 2015 -  This annual briefing, which marks a new approach of engaging the Africa’s Regional Economic Communities (RECs) in Africa Week, will focus on the African Union’s Silencing the Guns agenda – a theme that was agreed with the RECs in January 2015. The overall thrust of the briefing will be anchored on Agenda 2063’s First 10-Year Implementation Plan, as Silencing the Guns constitutes one of its flagship projects.
The briefing will specifically focus on the role of the RECs as implementing agencies in addressing the four interrelated dimensions of the agenda, highlighting persistent challenges and the role of the international community in supporting the RECs in this regard.

Co-organized by the Office of the Special Adviser on Africa (OSAA) and the Africa’s Regional Economic Communities.
