A Manifesto for African Regionalism - And How to Support It

12 April 2023

On 12 April 2023 from 11:00 to 13:00 CET, ECDPM, together with United Nations University Institute on Comparative Regional Integration Studies and the Trade Law Centre are co-organising an online webinar to discuss how external actors can best support African economic integration. 

Given the surge in initiatives around African economic integration - where the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) and the EU Global Gateway stand out as seeking to build upon existing African regional initiatives - the webinar will aim to explore how to make a success of these.  

Two recent publications will help frame the discussions: 
A ‘manifesto for regionalism in Africa’, put forward by Professor Fredrik Söderbaum, a renowned academic on African regionalism building and UNU-CRIS Associate Research Fellow on a recent publication on regional organisations and Agenda 2063.

An ECDPM paper on ‘Thinking and working politically on African economic integration’, seeks to pull together key messages from the latest efforts at supporting regional economic integration in Africa.
