The African Union is a regional international intergovernmental organization consisting of 52 African states, created in 2001.
The African Union had several main objects and goals such as to rid the continent of the remaining vestiges of colonization and apartheid, to cultivate unity and solidarity among African States, to protect the sovereignty and territorial integrity of Member States and to promote international cooperation within the framework of the United Nations.
Taking into account African realities and nature conditions, the organization has faced difficulties at the very beginning of its existence. However, it continues its development and integration. The majority of foreign and domestic researchers believe that its creation has opened a new chapter in the history of the African continent.
