The report addressed the beginning of the instrument of the right to peace and the problems that required its recognition and inclusion within the Sustainable Development Goals, and then began the report by focusing the scope on African countries and their weakness and fragility of peace and security, which means that the Agenda of Africa 2063 has been abandoned by some countries due to obstacles resulting from the lack of peace following the history of coups d’état and political, economic and military unrest.
The report discusses the right to peace from an African perspective, by introducing its indicators, and the role of government organizations such as: the African Union, through which the African Union has adopted a security system through which it performs a number of functions such as: promoting security and stability in Africa; predicting and preventing conflicts, supporting and implementing peace-building; helping to rebuild the post-conflict phase; and coordinating continental efforts to prevent and combat international terrorism. Developing a conflict prevention framework designed to give more attention to positive peace through a more comprehensive peace-building strategy in post-conflict situations, its draft called for the formation of civilian peacekeeping and emergency response teams. Non-governmental organizations in revitalizing various peace processes such as copa – International Centre for Peace, Human Rights and Development in Africa (IPHRD-Africa) – ACCORD
Finally, it addressed the perspective of the right to peace within Agenda Africa 2063; peace was the most prominent african union slogan in the Sustainable Development Strategy; the 2063 Agenda of the African Union aims to end all wars and violent conflicts on the continent, and to that end, the African Union strengthens dialogue-based mechanisms for conflict prevention and resolution. To reduce military resources and secure the state monopoly on the use of force. It also calls for the activation of working mechanisms for the peaceful resolution of conflicts in all areas of society in order to promote a culture of peace and tolerance among African peoples.
The report addressed the challenges to peace in Africa, the lack of political will, the spread of organized crime, the drug trade, money laundering, theproliferation of armed terrorist groups across the continent such as Boko Haram, the Mujahideen Youth Movement, the Christian Lord’s Army and finally the “Silence guns” initiative as a positive African initiative for peace in Africa.
