The African Union is a relatively young organisation, in which all African countries except Morocco try to achieve greater unity and solidarity between the African countries, and to promote peace, security and stability on the continent. Besides, it tries to increase the role of African nations in the global economy and international negotiations. The most important decision-making body of the African Union, comparable with the General Assembly within the United Nations, is the African Union Assembly of Heads of State and Government (AU-AHSG). This is the committee simulated at LEMUN. The normal Rules of Procedure apply, with the exception of ‘suspended’ member states: these do not have the right to vote.
