The African Union Shift to 'Coalitions of the Willing'
The African Union continues to play an important role in enforcing peace and security on the continent, but the political momentum is shifting toward "coalitions of the willing" and regional economic commissions, according to Africa experts interviewed in Nairobi and Addis Ababa for episode four of Peacebuilders, a nine-part series produced by Carnegie Corporation of New York for its podcast Diffusion.
Peacebuilders features nine episodes from East Africa on everything from the future of the African Union to immigration to media and elections in Kenya.
