Proceeded by the Organization of African Unity (OAU), the African Union (AU) is a continental organization consisting of all 55 African states. Established on the 26th of May in 2001, the AU is a specialized agency of the United Nations (UN) dedicated towards strengthening the relationship between nations within the continent, as well as with other countries worldwide. The AU serves as a link between the UN’s major assemblies and individual African nations, as it provides a structural framework for these nations to abide by, ultimately instituting a relatively consistent perspective on the international stage.
At CAHSMUN 2019, the AU offers delegates an experience to delve into mandate and operations of a regional body. AU is designed for delegates who want to step out General Assemblies while retaining the a similar structure in a smaller, specialized committee. Position papers are strongly recommended for this committee, but are mandatory for delegates to be considered for awards. Please read about CAHSMUN’s Position Paper policy, which can be found under the list of committees on the “Committees” page.
Questions, inquiries, and position papers for this committee can be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
BACKGROUNDERS WILL be available soon
