About this book
The resurgence of regionalism is borne out of the current political logjams that have characterized the governance and operations of multilateral trading system over the past one decade and a half. Oloruntoba critically examines Euro-Nigeria relations within the context of the Economic Partnership Agreements in terms of the political and economic implications of the agreements on Nigeria’s non-oil exports sub-sectors. Set within one of the main objectives of the Economic Partnership Agreements, he also interrogates the prospects and challenges of regional integration in Africa under the regime of transnational accumulation, which the Economic Partnership Agreements represents.

“Moving deftly between Nigerian, sub-regional, and continental debates on how best to reposition African actors in a globalized world defined by the triumph of Euro-American (and Chinese) capitalist hegemony disguised as globalization, Oloruntoba’s analysis is illuminating in its sweep and depth. Oloruntoba demonstrates how an African integrative agenda can encourage regional flows in multiple sectors, correct the power imbalance between Africa and the rest of the world, and confer autonomous agency on African actors in bilateral and multilateral negotiations.”
-Moses Ochonu, Professor of History, Vanderbilt University, USA
"Oloruntoba has made a significant contribution to challenging the dominant Eurocentric narrative on the relations between Europe and Africa. It is a must read book."
