Open Session of the PSC on ”Preliminary Discussion on Unconstitutional Changes of Government and Popular Uprisings in Africa”

 

ADDIS ABABA, Ethiopia, April 28, 2014/African Press Organization (APO)/ Journalists are invited to attend an open session of the Peace and Security Council (PSC), on ‘Unconstitutional Changes of Government and Popular Uprisings in Africa, Challenges and Lessons Learnt’, on Tuesday, 29 April 2014, 10:00 am, in the Mandela Hall at the AU New Conference Center (AUCC), in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.

 

The Session will be open to all AU Member States, Partners and representatives of the diplomatic missions in Ethiopia, academicians, civil society, think-tanks and other relevant stakeholders.

 

The objective of the open session is to provide an avenue for a deep reflection on the elements that constitute an unconstitutional change of government on one hand, and how to respond on the other, to popular uprisings that result in a change of government that is not consistent with constitutional provisions. It is expected that the session will provide an opportunity for a thorough reflection on all dimensions of unconstitutional changes of government and popular uprisings with a view to strengthening the existing instruments and normative frameworks. The outcome of the meeting will largely form the basis for a broader debate in the Assembly of the Union on the prevention of unconstitutional changes of government, popular uprisings and their effective resolution on the continent.
