Description

A concise study examining the various trends and structural factors in the contemnporary political economy of West Africa, assessing how they will affect the needs and capabilities of the sub-region’s countries to achieve a more rapid system of democratic government and respond to the demands of globalisation. It provides an overview of the area’s development issues, including the prospects for regional co-operation/integration, the important geo-political and economic role played by France in West Africa, changing forms of popular identity, and Islam and its growing influence. It argues that in this age of intensifying globalisation, West Africa’s future centres around the choice between the pursuit of national strategies, and closer regional co-operation, the political will not withstanding.
