Context: The Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ) was commissioned by the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ) to conduct a desk study to assess the state of establishment and functioning of African Peace and Security Architecture (APSA) components, as well as the impact of interventions by AU/RECs for peace and security on the continent. The desk study looked at the state of peace and conflict occurrence on the continent and analysed the impact of interventions within the framework of APSA in the area of conflict prevention, crisis management and resolution, as well as peace building, between 2007 and 2013. The outcome of the study indicates that AU/RECs significantly contribute to the promotion and maintenance of peace and security on the continent.
