A DECADE OF AFRICAN UNION AND EUROPEAN UNION TRANS-REGIONAL SECURITY RELATIONS

Glen Segell

Abstract


The first decade of the new millennium saw the European Union deploy nine
security missions to the African continent, quoting the European Security and
Defence Policy. Unlike the numerous United Nations security missions that
European states had previously contributed to, these were part of a grand strategy
designed to link the African Union and the European Union in a process of transregionalism
defined as a unique organisational infrastructure (joint secretariat for
research, policy planning, preparation and coordination of meetings and
implementation of decisions). The rationale being that security and its associated
peace and stability are the basis for sustainable development in other areas. This
article follows the development of the trans-regionalism detailing the security
missions.
