The 8th High-level Seminar on Peace & Security in Africa. Oran, Algeria, 8-10 December.2021

Algeria hosted from 8 to 10 December 2021, the 8th High-level Conference on Peace and Security in Africa.

This conference, which was held in Oran, saw a high-level participation, in particular of the ministers of the member countries of the Peace and Security Council of the African Union (AU) as well as the African members of the United Nations Security Council. Experts and senior representatives of African organizations, the UN and the Arab League also attended this conference.

The meeting aimed to emphasize the need to promote common African action through the strengthening of coordination and cooperation between African countries members of the UN Security Council and other members of the AU. This will certainly make the voice of Africa heard within the Security Council and will better defend African positions on questions of peace and security, in addition to putting an end to the marginalization of Africa at the level of international decision-making bodies.

The holding of this 8th edition in Oran is intended to be an extension of the first editions initiated by Algeria during the years 2013,2014 and 2015 as part of its constant commitment to support the action of the organization in the areas of peace and security and its arduous efforts to strengthen joint African action.

These objectives constitute the main axes that Algeria tends to defend with force, on behalf of the AU, during its mandate 2024-2025 within the Security Council of the United Nations, in permanent coordination with the African states and in the framework of full compliance with AU decisions.
