The contributions to this special issue of the journal “Law in Africa” were presented at the international conference on Regional Integration in Africa held at the Justus Liebig University of Giessen, Germany, from 7–9 November 2008 with the cooperation of the Franz von Liszt Institute for International and Comparative Law. The conference started with two introductory presentations and a panel discussion assessing regional solutions for domestic problems in Africa from a legal perspective, an economic and a political point of view, drawing on experiences from development cooperation. The second day dealt with “Regional Security and Integration” and “Legal Integration” whilst the third day concluded with questions on “Integration and Human Rights”.
