Analyses of the APRM

This section includes reviews and analyses of the APRM from academics, research bodies and conferences dedicated to the subject.

The introduction of the AU’s Agenda 2063 means that yet another governance initiative has entered the African political landscape. This policy briefing examines the place of the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM) within Agenda 2063, as well as the African Governance Architecture (AGA). It argues that the APRM could effectively exist alongside them. However, at 12 years old, the APRM must first be reinvigorated, given its relative decline and the inadequate political will behind it.

This report was prepared by Gilles Badet, a researcher at the University of Abomey-Calavi specialising in local good governance. The report is based on notes taken at official meetings during the process, discussions with many leaders and participants, and close personal observations of the APRM process in Benin from its inception in March 2004 until the report was presented to APRM member countries in January 2008. The primary purpose of this report is to examine the extent to which the self-assessment process in Benin has fulfi lled the criteria of effectiveness and credibility defi ned by the founding documents of the APRM, and in particular, the extent to which it has been open, participatory, transparent and responsible. Gilles Badet reviews the problems which confronted the process, including weak public awareness, administrative problems within the institutions responsible for managing the process, and inadequate fi nancial resources. He also emphasises the strong points of the process, the first of which being President Boni Yayi’s personal interest in it and his involvement at all stages. (by Gilles Badet)
