The United States of Africa is a project that has been raising issues for decades. Indeed, many international actors, activists groups, countries and other companies are concerned about the unity of an African people formed as a strong and powerful continent. It is true that many key topics are addressed by this union at an International level but also at a regional one. Geopolitics, Economy, Health, Finance, Military, Raw material and many others are deeply concerned and will consequently deeply mutate from this new organization. Regarding the interests of the different actors that play a part in Africa, opinions are shared. Some sees it as a threat and others as a huge opportunity. Not only has the new world order that could generate the creation of such a powerful organization animated us to realize this investigation, but also another aspect. We did not understand why an organization which is so full of opportunities for the African people is not already created and organized. Africa is one of the biggest continents with almost 30,000,000 square kilometers of territory (it is as large as the USA, Europe, India and China altogether). Its population of nearly 1 billion is diverse and has many ethnic groups or tribes. The major ethnic groups are Berbers and other traditionally nomadic peoples, such as the Arabs who live in the North and Bantu in the central and southern regions. 8 millions Europeans and Asians also live there.

[...] and so, the aim is to promote the sound development of each country. We would have then an environment where the debate would have its place and where all parties would be heard. b. For the people : respect of human rights and democracy Underdevelopment and backwardness of Africa Democratic bind to its population goals which are essentially political and socio-economic. What makes the social objective always last. But the people is also an essential factor to develop countries. The African Union would make a significant step and would be like the American and European model, especially concerning education and rights of man to thereby achieve a democracy based on peace and good governance.

[...] Common Policy Create a common policy with the same values will be one of the biggest challenges of creating the United States of Africa. Economic development is at the heart of this objective. Thus, creating a common African market with a single African currency would be a lever for the African economy. Several financial institutions should help to achieve this as the African Central Bank, the African Monetary Fund and African Investment Bank. These institutions should enable African countries to strengthen their solidarity and avoid recession, mobilize the resources necessary to achieve the necessary investments in upgrading and diversifying the productive base of African economies, while preserving the environmental balance the continent.

[...] A head of state can lie to his people because he has all the powers. But a head of state cannot go against the will of other countries on pain of receiving remonstrances or threats of interference by other countries. If the African states formalized the creation of the united states of Africa's, commitment would be heavier than today. And on such fundamental issues as the preservation of human rights, goals will be set. As can be seen today in Europe, countries are penalized on the points which they do not answer. [...]

[...] But, before all, this federation of states has a political role. Some organizations have already paved the way for the USA: the United African Organization, the African Union Front and now the African Union. The most important is the African Union which represents 53 of the 54 African countries. The African Union[13] is an organization of the African states created in 2002. It replaced the OUA. The effectiveness of its institutions (Commissions, Pan-African Parliament and the council of peace and security) has taken place in 2003. [...]
