RESEARCH BRIEF: UN-AU Collaboration and Ambitions for People-Centric Operations

Ilhan Dahir examines some of the challenges that need to be addressed by the UN and AU to ensure that Protection of Civilians (PoC) adopts a more people-centred approach. AU and UN are operating with distinct strategic and operational approaches, which need to be streamlined in future hybrid and parallel operation settings.

This is one of several research briefs, which is part of a joint initiative by the Folke Bernadotte Academy (FBA), the Challenges Forum International Secretariat (CFIS) and the Swedish Defence University (SEDU). The aim of the series is to contribute to policy development by bringing cutting-edge research on key issues within peacekeeping to the attention of policy makers and practitioners.

The views and opinions expressed in the brief series are those of the author(s) and do not necessarily reflect the official policy or position of the collaborating partners.
