Is every action from an amenable group amenable on a unital $C^*$-algebra?

It would help if you reminded people what you mean by an amenable action on a $C^*$-algebra, and made more precise the quantifiers in your question. –  Yemon Choi Oct 16 '10 at 4:33
Ah, so you were asking if each (discrete?) amenable group has an amenable action on some unital C*-algebra. This seems to be answered below. –  Yemon Choi Oct 16 '10 at 7:23
Yes I mente discrete group. Sorry –  m07kl Oct 16 '10 at 8:40

Yes it is. It follows from Theorem 3.3 of [1] and the fact that the trivial action of an amenable group on $\mathbb{C}$ is amenable. More modern reference is [2] (in particular Section 4.3).
