Regionalism and the Global Economy: The Case of Africa


This book explores why most cooperation and integration arrangements in Africa have failed, and how regional integration could be made more successful. Outstanding economists from African as well as international institutions, such as the World Bank, the African Development Bank and the International Monetary Fund, provide an in-depth analysis of Africa's past and future prospects for economic integration. It includes contributions from Ernest Aryeetey, Peter Robinson, William Lyakurwa, Percy Mercy, Sam Assante, Alieu Jeng, Louis Kasekende, Mohsin Khan, Gavin Maasdorp, Sindiso Ngwenya, Gene Tidrick, and Samuel Wangwe. The book is enriched by a vivid account of a two-day conference in which the research was discussed in a creative and frank manner. Questions addressed include: What form of regional cooperation would be most relevant in different parts of the continent? How can policies of national governments and international financial institutions be improved in design as well as implementation?
