Abstract:This collective volume presents papers from a Consultative Workshop on 'Regional integration in Africa', organized and hosted by the Nordic Africa Institute, Uppsala, 8 and 9 March, 2001. Regionalism and/or globalization, by Sheila Page, discusses regions in Europe, North and South America, Africa (SADC and SACU), and Asia. It looks at the historical background of regions, countries' characteristics, and trade. Morten Bs (Regions and regionalization: a heretic's view) argues that regional organization in Africa should be redesigned to become embedded in the reality of the African political economy rather than de-attaching itself from it. Kate Meagher (Throwing out the baby to keep the bathwater) focusing on West Africa, looks at a central concern of the new regionalism in Africa, which relates to the adoption of informal cross-border trading networks as agents of regional integration 'from below'. The paper by Heribert Dieter, Guy Lamb and Henning Melber on Prospects for regional cooperation in southern Africa, accounts for the problems currently facing southern Africa and assesses the prospects for regional cooperation in the future.
