Abstract:This book is the result of a two-day conference organized by UNESCO/MOST (Management of Social Transformations) in partnership with the African Capacity Building Fund (ACBF) in Banjul (The Gambia) in December 2005. Its purpose was to probe the failures of integration on the part of The Gambia on several fronts: to examine which policies at the national level are to the advantage or detriment of integration and to take an audit of policy measures operating between the immediate neighbours of The Gambia and Senegal. The book is composed of eight essays: Building blocks towards regional integration in West Africa: the case of Sene-Gambia (a strategic vision) by Omar Ousman Jobe; The Sene-Gambia in historical and contemporary perspectives by Nicodemus Fru Awasom; Regional trade integration in West Africa: the Gambian perspective-refocused by Bai Ebrima Jobe; Cross-border initiative: foreign affairs perspective by Mariama Njie; Transport and regional integration in West Africa by Abdoulie O. Camara; Regional integration: implications for an integrated education system in ECOWAS by Babouacar Bouy and Jawara Gaye; Non-State actors in regional integration: stepping stones or stumbling blocks? by Baba-Mustapha Marong; and Gender and its implications in regional integration: some preliminary reflections by Siga Fatima Jagne.
