Summary

This book is designed to discern what African economic integration entails, why it is going to be inevitable in the 21st century, and how integration of national economies can be attuned to attaining the socio-economic goals and aspirations of member-countries. It blends theory, application of the theory, and an enumeration of imperatives and initiatives for governments in order to provide insights for educators and students in African development at tertiary institutions, for policy makers in African governments, and for inter-governmental organizations.
