  • ISSN : 0010-4051



This article attempts to contribute to the on-going debate on African integration from a legal perspective. Africa's path towards consolidating unity and development, as elsewhere, is replete with fundamental obstacles. This article suggests a way forward through a number of legal initiatives designed to redress the failures usually encountered in the process of African integration. Such legal imperatives include commitment to constitutionalism in member states, a framework for ensuring compliance with transnational directives, enhanced synergy between national and regional institutions and increased interaction amongst legal stakeholders across the continent.
