Report of Workshop on the Cost of Non-Integration in Africa

Less than two weeks before the so-called Grand Debate—the Accra Summit of Heads of State and Government of the African Union (AU) in Ghana—TrustAfrica organized a historic gathering of its own in Marrakech, Morocco, bringing together a diverse set of organizations and individuals, including scholars, civil society leaders, and development practitioners. The workshop sparked a lively debate over whether it was appropriate, in the face of many other pressing regional issues, to be discussing the cost of non-integration in Africa. In line with other recent meetings organized by civil society organizations (CSOs) across the continent2, the TrustAfrica workshop concluded that continental processes intended to achieve regional integration and Union Government should be consultative and people-driven; and that free movement and African citizenship are essential in attaining a united Africa.
