Howard University in collaboration with the African Union Mission in Washington, D.C. sponsors an annual simulation of the African Union, the regional organization of African states, in the form of an International Model African Union Conference. Celebrating forty years of simulation of the OAU and now AU, the 19th Annual International Model African Union Conference will be held from February 19th to 21st, 2021.
The International Model African Union provides a unique opportunity for university and college students to study the role, structure and activities of the African Union as well as the capabilities and constraints that shape the policies of member states toward the economic, social, and political-security issues facing African countries.
Because of health and safety concerns in the context of the novel corona virus pandemic and to facilitate the participation of delegations from Canada and Kenya, the 2021 simulation will be virtual.
Each participating university represents one or more Member State of the African Union. Preparatory material will be available on line.
Country assignments are now being made for the 2021 Conference. For registration and other information please contact:
