Nicolas Bwakira, Special Representative of the Chairperson of the African Union (AU) Commission for Somalia, discusses the role that the AU Mission in Somalia (AMISOM) is playing in support of Somalia’s transitional government.

The current crisis in Somalia has proven that both the AU and the UN can work in partnership successfully to address effectively conflicts in Africa. The AMISOM model in Somalia has the capacity to strengthen the working relationship with the UN in other ongoing regional conflicts.
