AU holds meeting with Military Attachés Association on diplomatic missions in Africa

The African Union Commission’s Department of Political Affairs, Peace and Security (PAPS), in partnership with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (UNOCHR), will hold a meeting on Tuesday with the Military Attachés Association (MAA) in its diplomatic missions to the AU.

According to a media advisory released by the AU, the meeting with the MAA is planned to gain their support as essential entry points to their respective embassies and capitals and benefit from their rich military expertise and experience in peace operations worldwide, including in Africa.

Other participants alongside the MAA include Peace Support Operations Division Personnel and UNOCHR personnel.

The meeting will start at 9:00 AM (EAT) on Tuesday, 30 April 2024, at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

The objectives listed for the meeting are to enhance the MAA members’ awareness of the African Union Compliance and Accountability Framework (AUCF) and establish viable linkages for project implementation.

In addition, it will “mobilise the contributions of the military attaches to the implementation of the AUCF project by eliciting their military expertise and experiences in ensuring troop compliance with IHRL and IHL in UN Peace operations and AU PSOs.”
