The Chairman of TASAM Süleyman Şensoy says “ Recently, regional organizations in Africa are making significant progress in erasing the previous wrong image of Africa as a continent for conflicts, crisis, illnesses, etc. and they have gained remarkable success and developments on this aspect. The number of these organizations increase day by day, and they play an important role in the development of Africa and it’s global integration. The continent’s and the regional institution’s political weight is constantly increasing in the multidimensional and multipolar world system.“
