GETTING THE AFRICAN UNION ON THE G8 SUMMIT AGENDA
AUF ROLE IN FORMULATING INTERNATIONAL POLICY ON AFRICA

At a consultation meeting on September 12, the AUF General Secretary Dan Kashagama spoke with Canadian Minister for International Cooperation, Maria Minna, and the chiefs of the Canadian International Development Agency CIDA, about the need for Canada and other countries to refrain from undermining the African Union in the course of pursuing their international policy goals.

Maria Minna agreed with the AUF position concerning the need to respect African institutions including the African Union, and has stated that Canada will try to get the other G8 countries to respect the institutions of governace in Africa. She was scheduled to travel for Botswana after the meeting.

In other developments the AUF participated in sessions organized by Lloyd Axworthy, the former Foreign Minister of Canada. The AUF had discussions that included Atta Mills, former Vice President of Ghana, with the aim of formulating an agenda for global affairs. The AUF wants the G8 leaders to start relating to the African Union as the primary unit for governance in Africa. The sessions held at the Institute for Global Studies of the University of British Columbia, will help to set the agenda for Canada and other international institutions on policies that concern relations with the African Union.
