Organization of african unity

The year 1963 marks the creation of the Organization of African Unity (OAU) and the beginning of a new era for the African continent. This dynamic new association focuses on building a prosperous future for all Africans. The OAU hopes to establish a strong economic and political future. To do so, it must ensure cooperation and coordination between all Member States. Moreover, the OAU has committed itself to the fight against colonialism and white minority rule, while working towards equal rights for all Africans and the promotion of peace and diplomacy in conflict resolution. Furthermore, the OAU expects to remain nonpartisan in terms of current global politics so as to avoid control from external forces. It remains to be seen whether or not the OAU will be able to meet its objectives of promoting unity, solidarity, integrity and development throughout all Member States, as well as promoting international cooperation within the United Nations framework.
