AU DIASPORA DECLARATION:
TEN YEARS AFTER
DATE: 23 - 28 MAY, 2022
ADDIS ABEBA, ETHIOPIA
The 25th of May 2022, The World Africa Day, will mark the tenth year since the Heads of State and Government and Representatives of the African Union, the West Indies, Latin America, South America, and varied representatives from the African Diaspora met during the Global African Diaspora Summit in Sandton, Johannesburg, South Africa and witnessed the historic adoption of the African Union-African Diaspora Declaration concerning the Diaspora Sixth Region of Africa.
Following recent consultations with the CIDO about what the African Union Commission intended to do on May 25, 2022 or thereabouts, to review the progress that has occurred during the past ten years— the answer was “no planning”. As such, African Diaspora Civil Society organizations, Pan Africanists, and African Activist Organizations have taken the initiative to organize a special Roundtable on the AU Diaspora Declaration: Ten Years After.
