Regional Resurgence in Africa: Prospects and Challenges of African Union perceives the AU as a Pan-African entity with its mandate for 'comprehensive security' in the continent, implying its pursuit of three security objectives: resolution of armed conflicts, political stability and economic security. The AU's interrelationship with the state system, existing and emerging social faultlines, and the multiple regional processes in Africa are interrogated by undertaking case studies on territorial, political and economic security concerns. The findings of this analysis are used to explore the scope for policy improvisation pertaining to the interface among the AU, its member countries and the emerging extra-regional powers, including India.
