Book Review : Migration and regional integration in West Africa: A borderless ECOWAS.

GovInn Research Fellow Prudence Nkomo has published a book review in the journal African Insight, looking at Adebusuyi Isaac Adeniran’s book, Migration and regional integration in West Africa: A borderless ECOWAS. The review was published in the December 2018 edition of the journal.

Although the migration process examined is largely informal, the resulting integration proves that a regionally integrated ECOWAS is feasible – and that it should be people-centric and not state-centric. This is why this book significantly contributes to efforts to understand the role of informal migration in the realisation of a regionally integrated ECOWAS. Academics, policy makers and development workers will benefit greatly from the book and it will be an invaluable resource to policy makers in ECOWAS.
