Title:African integration schemes: a case study of the Southern African Development Community (SADC)
Author:Ndulo, MunaISNI
Periodical:African Yearbook of International Law
Geographic term:Southern Africa
Abstract:The Southern African Development Community (SADC), established in 1992, groups together fourteen countries in southern Africa with the objective of developing closer economic, political and social ties among themselves and eventually establishing an economic community. Its approach to integration is not based on the orthodox trade liberalization strategies alone, but places the development of infrastructure and production on a level as important as the elimination of tariffs. After outlining the history and background of SADC, including its beginnings as the Southern African Development Coordination Conference (SADCC), the author discusses the goals and objectives of SADC, its institutions and structures, and its strategies for achieving a common market. He concludes by considering South Africa's position within the SADC and SADC prospects for the future. Notes, ref.
