African Union

"The African Union (AU) is a continental body consisting of the 55 member states that make up the countries of the African Continent. It was officially launched in 2002 as a successor to the Organisation of African Unity (OAU, 1963-1999). [...] The decision to re-launch Africa’s pan-African organisation was the outcome of a consensus by African leaders that in order to realise Africa’s potential, there was a need to refocus attention from the fight for decolonisation and ridding the continent of apartheid, which had been the focus of the OAU, towards increased cooperation and integration of African states to drive Africa’s growth and economic development. The AU is guided by its vision of 'An Integrated, Prosperous and Peaceful Africa, driven by its own citizens and representing a dynamic force in the global arena.'"

Bryan is 21 years old and studies law at the KU Leuven, Belgium. In September he will start his Masters with a specialization in International & European Law and Criminal Law. At the last conference Bryan attended, he got to experience the dynamic between the countries of the African Union, while also representing an African nation himself. For this reason, he is excited to be chairing the African Union at BIMUN 2023. When he is not studying or doing MUN-related stuff, Bryan loves listening to French rap music, spending time with his friends, or playing a famous car-football game better known as Rocket League!

„I’m looking forward to meeting you all in November!“

Fatama Jabin

Fatama Jabin is 22 years old and will be serving as your English AU chair. As a 7th grader, Fatama walked into her first MUN conference and fell in love. Since then, she has participated in conferences across many countries. Currently, she is studying economics at the University of Bonn and so far it's been the longest time she has lived in one place. She is equally fluent in Bangla, German and English. She loves debating, discussing solutions to problems, teaching, making videos, trying (and failing) to make new recipes and binge-watching tiny house videos (small houses, often on movable trailers).

José is 23 years old and from Galicia, a land in the northwest of Spain, but he currently lives in Leuven. After getting his Bachelor’s in Journalism, a Master’s in International Studies, and working for the delegation of his regional government in Brussels, José is looking forward to his next challenge. These last years, José has been quite active MUNing, and MUN conferences have become a space he has loved since his very first time attending one. He is very excited for joining as a chair of the African Union, the house of a vibrant and challenging continent such as Africa. Also, its trilingual characteristic offers a great experience for all participants, in José's opinion. What does he do outside MUN? Well, he loves football, music (listening to it, he can’t play any instruments), reading, and playing video games.

“See you at this Bonnbastic Committee!”
