AU Agenda 2063 and Africa Peace and Security
SALO is part of the Africa Policy Circle (APC), a network of African Civil Society and Policy Think tanks to contribute collaboratively to Africa’s development, Gender equality and the strengthening of the Africa’s Peace and Security Architecture (APSA). The APC occasionally produces policy briefs and meets with relevant organs of the AU to contribute towards the evolving APSA. The APC also supports network members in addressing development challenges at national level. The APC meets twice a year.
On the 5th and 6th October 2017, SALO attended the 7th Workshop of the African Policy Circle. The meeting held in Mombasa, Kenya focused on their continuing theme of “inequalities”. The topic discussed was “Structural Inequalities as a driver for Violent Extremism.”
