Abstract:In 1975 the Economic Community of West African States (E.C.O.W.A.S.) was established to promote collective self-reliance in West Africa. Later, the Communauté économique de l'Afrique de l'ouest (C.E.A.O.) was created by six francophone countries to counterbalance Nigerian influence within West Africa. After analysing the process of evolution which resulted in the adoption of the C.E.A.O. and E.C.O.W.A.S. treaties, this article assesses the relationship between the two organisations in the light of Nigeria's changing policy in the region.
