Overview

The speaker will offer insights into the activities of the US Mission to the African Union, and reflect on the growing importance of such multilateral engagements.

In 2006, the US Government established the US Mission to the African Union (USAU), a diplomatic representation led by an Ambassador dedicated to working with the AU. Through USAU, the US Government has sought to expand the AU's effectiveness by helping develop its diplomatic toolkit and to maintain an open and influential dialogue on the broad spectrum of policy initiatives the AU undertakes.
