African Union – Peace and Security Council (AU PSC)
The Peace and Security Council serves a similar function to the African Union as the UNSC does to the UN. Besides being the key element of the African Peace and Security Architecture, it is tasked with the prevention, management and resolution of conflicts within the African Unions legislation. One of the key powers of the PSC is the ability to undertake peace-keeping and peace-enforcing missions inside Africa. Additionally the PSC has a wide range of other capabilities towards achieving its mission.
