During the year 2000 an initiative among the African states to transform the Organisation of African Unity (OAU) into the African Union (AU) gained momentum. It resulted in the ratification of the Constitutive Act and its adoption at the 36th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government in July 2001 in Lusaka.

|Young female fighters in African wars : conflict and its consequences|
Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Utas, Mats; Persson, Mariam; Coulter, Chris and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet, Conflict, Displacement and Transformation; Uppsala published in 2008
In the numerous armed conflicts that are tearing the African continent apart, young women are participants and carry guns alongside their male comrades-in-arms. Challenging the stereotype of women in African wars as victims only, this issue of the Nordic Africa Institute Policy Dialogues shows how in modern African wars women have often been as active as men. Female fighters are victimized, yet they are not mere victims. Girls and young women who volunteer to fight often possess quite considerable strength and independence. Programmes for disarming, demobilizing...

|Land consolidation, canals and apps : reshaping agriculture in Ethiopia|
Report; report; text, Created By Nordic Africa Institute Created By Beyene, Atakilte and Published By Nordiska Afrikainstitutet, Research Unit; Uppsala published in 2019
Over the last 15 years, Ethiopia has seen remarkable economic growth. The agricultural sector is part of this growth, but its proportional contribution to the overall economy has gone down. There is an urgent need to transform Ethiopian agriculture, not least when it comes to the inefficient land laws that impede young people from investing in farmland. This policy note identifies the structural problems that constrain such a transformation and gives recommendations on how they can be addressed.
