The African Union Commission (AUC) envisions “an integrated continent that is politically united based on the ideals of Pan Africanism and the vision of Africa’s Renaissance”. Through its Citizens and Diaspora Organization (CIDO) the AUC seeks to nurture strategic relationships between the continent’s diaspora and Member States of the African Union. Initiatives to this end will be implemented under the Diaspora Engagement Project.

In May 2012, at the Global African Diaspora Summit held in Sandton, South Africa, African Heads of States and Governments adopted a Declaration that paved way for the development and implementation of the African Union Diaspora Programme. The Diaspora Engagement Project is an initiative of this programme.
