LE DROIT A LA PAIX ET LA PROBLÉMATIQUE DE L'INTERDICTION DU RECOURS A LA FORCE DANS LE RÈGLEMENT DES DIFFÉRENDS INTERNATIONAUX

Vingt ans après l’adoption de la Déclaration universelle des droits de l’Homme, les Etats réunis à Téhéran, en 1968[1], ont fait une proclamation historique, en « reconnaissant que l’humanité entière aspire à la paix et que la paix et la justice sont indispensables à la pleine réalisation des droits de l’homme et des libertés fondamentales ». La paix et la justice, deux sœurs jumelles, dirait-on, ont été ainsi présentées comme les colonnes d’un Etat dans lequel les droits de l’homme et les libertés fondamentales (...) Read more ...

THE CONCEPT OF UBUNTU AND YOUTHS PARTICIPATION IN AFRICAN UNION'S INTEGRATION PROCESSES

“A generation of peace-makers is already acting in Africa. African Union leaders should work closely with young people to successfully implement the Agenda 2063”. By Justice Virgile Rivet Samba Moussinga – Humanitarian Law, Human Rights and Peace Promotion in Africa (Republic of Congo). The African proverb “If you want to go fast, go alone. If you want to go far, go together ’’ best highlights the utility of union in the development’s process as the African legacy is oriented toward brotherhood.

The visibility of African youths in peace building efforts is impossible to ignore. However, the effectiveness of their efforts is still to be researched

  Prosper Maguchu Dr. Juris – Researcher specializing in Human Rights, Financial Crimes and Large Scale Conspiracies/Serious Crime, Sanctions, and Odious debts. (Zimbabwe) What makes a union in Africa a positive element of development, when in Europe people or countries are choosing to exit from their union? It has now become a cliché to talk, write, or teach about the upside of regional integration in Africa. A plethora of articles and books have been and are still being published on the same. However, the concept still remains elusive-- a mere hope that Africa will be united. After all this was the idea of the Pan Africanist founding fathers of the Organization fo (...) Read more ...

A critique: The state of Peace, Democracy and Good Governance in Africa

Most inter-governmental organizations often have factors that militate against their agendas and the national interests of their member states. They advance “Reservation” to enable states to participate in treaties despite unacceptable provision(s) that may not conform to their domestic laws (due to political, cultural or social reasons). The AU is not an exception, the United Nations as well as the European Union suffer the same problem. The AU has some good attributes, but has been constrained since its inception. It aims to promote political and economic unity among its members, and the promotion of good governance and democracy within the union is enshrined in AU Constitutive (...) Read more ... Comments
