The book offers a study of regionalism in Africa and investigates the ways in which law can be used to address the issues raised by regional processes on the continent. The book examines the African Economic Community, considering that it has been entrusted to coordinate and to harmonise policies between various Regional Economic Communities (RECs) across the continent, thereby influencing the continent's approach towards regional integration. In particular, it seeks to identify how law can be used to strengthen the African RECs while ensuring that they achieve their goal of promoting regional development across the continent.
