Who:

Journalists, news editors, bloggers, media representatives across Africa and beyond the continent, as well as representatives of member states, international organisations, think tanks, academia and concerned African citizens, are invited to register and follow this discussion on the AU online platforms.

Why:

The African Union (AU) Institutional Reforms process led to a merger of the former Political Affairs Department (DPA) and the former Peace and Security Department (PSD), which took effect in March 2021 with the election of H.E. Ambassador Bankole Adeoye, as the first ever African Union Commissioner for Political Affairs, Peace and Security. On assuming office, Commissioner Bankole held a first virtual press conference to share his vision for “good governance, peace dividends”, in Africa, and promised to be engaging with the media on a regular basis. Almost six months into office, H.E. Commissioner Bankole will be honouring his promise to give an overview on the African Union’s contributions to inclusive governance, stability and security on the continent, to Africans, global citizens of African descent, partners and friends of Africa.
