Since the formation of the African Union (AU) in 2002, peace and security has been its central components. The African Union has sought to respond to the many violent conflicts on the continent with African solutions to African problems through the establishment of the African Union Peace and Security Architecture (APSA) and its components. More than a decade however, the African continent remains punctuated by violent conflicts, in, for example, Central Africa, Libya, the Lake Chad Basin region and the Sahel region. This work will assess the African Union peace and security architecture, its strength and challenges using the Central African region as analysis and offers several recommendations such as a coherent and mutually reinforcing cooperation between the African Union and regional organizations in Central Africa on regional peace and security.
