From the Paper:

"According to Melber (2001) the formation of the African Union on 11 July 2000 was a constitutive act implemented by the 36th Ordinary Session of the Assembly of Heads of State and Government. This act mandated ratification by at least two-thirds of the 53 members of the Organization of African Unity. By the time the Lusaka Summit took place in July 2001, 50 member states had agreed upon the document and the African Union was created."
