The African Centre for Justice and Peace Studies (ACJPS) welcomes a resolution of the Peace and Security Council (PSC) of the African Union (AU) at its 1185th meeting, held at the Ministerial level on the Situation in Sudan establishing a high-level panel to deal with the ongoing armed conflict in Sudan.

 In a communique adopted at its 1185th meeting on 15 November 2023, the PSC at its ministerial session requested the Chairperson of the Commission “to set up a High-Level Ad hoc Panel on Sudan, that will work with all the Sudanese stakeholders including women and the youth, to ensure an all-inclusive process towards this civilian-led political transition”. The communique does not list the specific roles of the high-level panel but it is expected to work on the Sudan situation on a full-time basis. 

Acting under Article 7 of its Protocol, the PSC also emphasized that there can be no viable and sustainable military solution to the conflict and that only genuine, truly representative, and all-inclusive Sudanese dialogue can lead to an amicable and sustainable solution to the current situation, and in this regard, while welcoming the Agreement on Humanitarian Access signed on 7 November 2023 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia, it stressed the need to ensure Africa’s full and effective participation and involvement in the Jeddah peace process.
