au-2-en-2013-delim-a-demar-user-guide (1).pdf.jpgDelimitation and Demarcation of Boundaries in Africa : General Issues and Case Studies
Book/Monograph, Created By African Union Commission Department of Peace and Security Department (PSD) and Published By African Union Border Programme (AUBP), Peace and Security Department in English language
It has been forty-nine years since the independent States of Africa, under the auspices of the Organisation of African Unity (OAU), famously pledged to respect their territorial boundaries inherited from the colonial period at the Cairo Conference of 1964. Since that time, this acceptance of the territorial status quo at independence has been relatively successful in preventing major conflicts over territorial claims in Africa. However, often the popular understanding of ‘keeping the territorial status quo’ has also dissuaded African States from dealing with residual ...

Book/Monograph, Created By African Union Commission Department of Peace and Security Department (PSD) and Published By African Union Border Programme (AUBP), Peace and Security Department in English language
The delimitation and demarcation initiative meets three imperative needs: The first is geopolitical, concerning the peace, security and stability that derive from conflict prevention. The Programme does not aim for a new ‘Balkanisation’; rather, it is a way to reinforce State territorial sovereignty that brings with it the freedom to open up and integrate. The second need is geo-economics: a visible, well-managed border encourages trade. The third need is socio-economic, as local cross-border cooperation initiatives between committed neighbouring communities can be supported. ...

au2016-en-procedures-guide-disputes-low-res.pdf.jpgAfrican Border Dispute Settlement: The User’s Guide
Book/Monograph, Created By African Union Commission Department of Peace and Security Department (PSD) and Published By African Union Border Programme (AUBP), Peace and Security Department in English language
Borders, which constitute a core security interest of the State, determine the extent of the geographical area under the exclusive jurisdiction of a State. The absence of clearly defined territorial control and the ill management of border zones favour the eruption of grave disputes, especially when the said entities are rich in natural resources, which are subjected to conflicting claims. The structural prevention of disputes is one of the central axes of the AUBP’s activities; the publication of this Guidebook is fully part of this dynamic. In accord...

Book chapter, Created By African Union Commission Department of Peace and Security Department (PSD) and Published By African Union Border Programme (AUBP), Peace and Security Department in English language
Every boundary across Africa – indeed across the world – is unique, with its own distinct history, definition, and human and physical geographical contexts. The aim of this handbook is not to proscribe strict regulations for how boundary commissions should be created and should work, as this will depend on the individual contexts. Instead, by gathering information and advice from boundary commissioners across Africa, the handbook aims to provide other African governments and institutions with inspiration and some helpful guidance based on existing practice. This ...
