Past Projects

The Sudan Peace Archive: The Archive consists of documents that emerged out of the work of the African Union High-Level Panel on Darfur chaired by former South African President Thabo Mbeki, and including former Burundian President Pierre Buyoya, and former Nigerian President Gen. Abdulsalami Abubakar, and subsequently expanded mandate of the African Union High Level Implementation Panel. The archive was established in 2013 with collections donated by AUHIP staff members Alex de Waal, Neha Erasmus, and Dave Mozersky.  It includes additional resources: Background to the AUPD and AUHIP; an Interactive Timeline of the Work of the AUHIP ; Highlights from the collections; List of key agreements created through the mediation processes; and a List of acronyms used in the documents. 

African Union Human Rights Memorial: This initiative included a series of seminars and consultations to inform the process of creating a permanent human rights memorial at the African Union headquarters in Addis Ababa.

African Union High-Level Implementation Panel: In March 2009, the African Union established a high-level panel on Darfur, headed by three former African Presidents, namely Thabo Mbeki (South Africa), Abdulsalami Abubaker (Nigeria) and Pierre Buyoya (Burundi). The panel was later given a broader mandate and named the AU High-Level Implementation Panel, WPF Executive Director Alex de Waal was a Senior Advisor to the Panel.
