Abstract

The formation of the African Union (AU) was precisely aimed at finding African solutions for African problems. The AU's institutions, powers and objectives were meant to bring about fundamental shifts away from the constraints imposed on actions under the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) charter. When the crises in Côte d'Ivoire and Libya began, it was hoped that the AU would be the one to find solutions under its much cherished notion of 'African solutions to African problems'. However, the organisation has sometimes taken half-hearted measures, and suffered from internal divisions among its members on how to react to the crises and their consequences, which rendered the notion of 'African solutions to African problems' moot.
