Monitoring Regional Integration in Southern Africa

Yearbook Volume 8 - 2008

Also available in Deutsch

The Yearbooks have developed into key sources of information on regional integration in southern Africa. This Yearbook Vol 8 - 2008 provides crucial information on the status and the development of regional integration in SADC. It also serves as constructive stimulus to debate on regional integration and its potential to thrust forward the Southern African Development Community (SADC), even the continent itself.
