summary
The African Union (AU) has committed to a vision of Africa that is �integrated, prosperous and peaceful � driven by its own citizens, a dynamic force in the global arena� (Vision and Mission of the African Union, May 2004). This guide is an effort to take up the challenge of achieving this vision. It is a tool to assist activists to engage with AU policies and programmes. It describes the AU decision-making process and outlines the roles and responsibilities of the AU institutions. It also contains a sampling of the experiences of those non-governmental organisations (NGOs) that have interacted with the AU.
