The African Union Border Programme (AUBP), supported by the GIZ and the Institute for Peace and Security Studies (IPSS) of Addis Ababa University (AAU), invites contributions to a colloquium on African Borders on 29th and 30th October 2015 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Following the 1st Colloquium on African Border Management in October 2012 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, the AUBP supported by the GIZ and in cooperation with the IPSS will hold a second colloquium to scientifically examine:
1) basic principles of the AUBP (conflict prevention through delimitation and demarcation),
2) the coherence of border policies between the continental and the regional level, and
3) in line with the 2015 theme of the African Union on women empowerment, explore the gender dimension of African border management.
