Abstract:This special issue of 'African Journal on Conflict Resolution' was published on the occasion of the tenth anniversary of the African Union. During the period 2002-2012, there has been a shift in the AU's focus from prevention to intervention, which inevitably brought about a change in responses by member States. The articles discuss several cases in which AU intervention was challenged. Contributions: The quest for Pax Africana: the case of the African Union's peace and security regime (Solomon A. Dersso); The African Union and the New Partnership for Africa's Development (NEPAD): restoring a relationship challenged? (Chris Landsberg); The African Union's diplomacy of the diaspora: context, challenges and prospects (Makumi Mwagiru); Between reactive and proactive interventionism: the African Union Peace and Security Council's engagement in the Horn of Africa (Tim Murithi); The African Union Peace and Security mechanism's crawl from design to reality: was the Libyan crisis a depiction of severe limitations? (Anyway Sithole); The African Union's notion of 'African solutions to African problems' and the crises in Côte d'Ivoire (2010-2011) and Libya (2011) (Kasaija Phillip Apuuli); A review of the African Union's experience in facilitating peaceful power transfers: Zimbabwe, Ivory Coast, Libya and Sudan: are there prospects for reform? (Martin Rupiya). [ASC Leiden abstract]
