More Thoughts on Regional Integration...TEAMWORKS UNDP/UNECA!
I believe life to be a work-in-progress, so it is an ineluctable fact that this blog is, too. This simply means that comments and suggestions would be appreciated on how to make this blog more efficacious. I don't see it to just be about prosaic, academic thought on regional integration.
In my view, it ought to be punchy and hard-hitting. I am confident you will get away from reading most of the entries and realise that the entries are very irreverent. I am continually trying to improve and expand the content, so comments much appreciated!
I am perhaps vindicated by having been invited by no less than an official of the UN Economic Commission on Africa to the the UNDP/UNECA intranet, which link can be found on http://ecateamworks.beta.undp.org/pg/profile/emmanuelk.bensahjr.
Those who made that possible, you know who you are! I will move along with this "e-accolade" by consolidating and improving the qualitative nature of the posts I write.
In the meantime, note to self:
1. what's the difference between regional cooperation and South-South cooperation (the answer might not be as obvious!)
2. Will Fortress Europe collapse due to a growing nationalism within the 27 member countries?
These are some of the issues that have preoccupied me over the past week. They shall be transformed into entries very soon!
