BOOK: "ECOWAS Protocol on Free Movement and the AfCFTA in West Africa" by Samuel Okunade and Olusola Ogunnubi

Posted on May 23, 2023

Centre for the Advancement of Scholarship Postdoctoral Fellow, Dr Samuel Okunade and Dr Olusola Ogunnubi (University of the Free State), are please to announce the publication of their edited volume "ECOWAS Protocol on Free Movement and the AfCFTA in West Africa: Costs, Benefits and Challenges" in May 2023. 


This book discusses the phenomenon of regional integration in Africa and the ensuing discourse on the intercontinental free trade agreement within the continent. Long before the move for the facilitation of free trade in Africa, freedom of movement by Africans within Africa backed up by the AU Protocol on free movement of persons has been in existence and in one way or the other both moves are closely related. The book explores the existing relationships between the ECOWAS Protocol on free movement, goods and services and AfCFTA on one hand and the impact of the implementation and non-implementation of these policies on West Africa on the other hand.


You can purchase the book, or chapters from the Springer Nature website
