This provides access to documents not readily available and brings together important OAU materials in a single, accessible volume. This volume is a compilation of significant texts of treatises, charters, resolutions, rules of procedure etc. relating to the Organization of African Unity since its foundation in 1963. The OAU celebrates its 30th anniversary in 1993. During this time the continent of Africa has been faced with many problems. The OAU has acted, inter alia, by adopting international conventions particular to Africa but which can also demonstrate the anxieties of the international community as a whole. The OAU has consequently drafted and adopted treaties on a variety of issues such as security, the environment, human rights and economic co-operation. It is aimed at academic/institutional readership: African studies; international and comparative law and at academics, lawyers, political scientists, civil servants and diplomats.
