The AU was formally established in 2001 and launched in 2002. It replaced the Organization for African Unity (OAU), which was established in 1963. Membership is open to all African states. The AU promotes unity, security and conflict resolution, democracy, human rights, and political, social and economic integration in Africa. Its main organs include the Assembly (the supreme body), the Commission (the secretariat), the Pan-African Parliament and the Peace and Security Council. The AU’s headquarters are in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia.
