Improving global governance
Posted Aug 11, 2022 | NUPI

Since 2006, the African Union has played an active role in strengthening civilian engagement across its Peace Support Operations (PSOs) through the development of the Policy Framework for the Civilian Dimension of the African Standby Force in 2006 and the subsequent formation of the Civilian Strategic Support Group (CSSG) in 2015. In their NUPI Policy brief, Andrew Tchie, Anab Grand, and Mariana Zabala examine the development of the CSSG and its actions to date and offer an overview on how and why the civilian component should be enhanced within future AU PSOs. They suggest that the AU should focus on the areas of human rights, civil affairs, political affairs and public information based on the UN´s Comprehensive Performance Assessment System.
