The African Parliamentary Union (APU) is a continental inter-parliamentary organization set up in Abidjan on 13th February, 1976. Its Statutes have been modified and adopted during the 22nd Conference which took place on 17 and 18 September 1999 in Luanda (Angola).
The APU has become a political forum where African Parliaments express their opinions and exchange views and experiences, thereby allowing the international opinion to pass judgement on the progress of democratization of the political life on the Continent.
It aims particularly :
The APU is and will remain a privileged framework for parliamentary dialogue and for promoting peace, democracy, good governance, sustainable development and social progress in Africa. For this purpose, it meets in conference annually to examine these questions and makes resolutions and recommendations that express African Parliamentarians' positions and opinions on questions that concern Africa. Moreover, the Parliamentarians transmit the results of their consultations to their respective parliaments and governments and to all concerned international organizations and institutions.
Currently the APU has 39 member national parliaments. Other parliaments and inter-governmental and non-governmental institutions or organizations follow up the work of the Union as observers.
The APU Headquarters is in Abidjan. A Headquarters Agreement was signed on January 7th, 1983, between the Republic of Côte d’Ivoire and the African Parliamentary Union, ex-Union of African Parliaments.
