"Ever since Edward Blyden...began to conceptualize a West African state, African leaders, scholars and activists have envisaged cooperation, integration and also unification of the continent. The model form for them has been European unification and the enduring puzzle for African unification is why Europe has managed to craft and develop strong institutions and organizations while African unification lags behind. While much research has been produced to explain this, [this book] tries to open up new lines of inquiry. Using an interdisciplinary approach, the author demonstrates the importance of insights from historical jurisprudence, contract law as applied to international law and organization, and the new institutional economics in understanding why African unification remains problematic."-- Provided by publisher.

This book examines regional economic integration in West Africa within the context of the institutional evolution of the Economic Community of West African States (ECOWAS). It uses the tools of the New Institutional Economics School to explore the origins and development of the most recent ECOWAS Treaty. Particular attention is given to the interface between domestic legal arrangements and the success of open markets at the regional and international levels. The impetus given to regional integration schemes by the belief that international economic institutions are designed to serve the interests of advanced countries is also considered.
