Many such problems affect poor peoples’ lives in areas such as mobility of people and goods, access to vital services in water and energy, security, environment, etc. This Discussion Paper explains the relevance of such regional cooperation and integration for problem solving in Africa. It does so by highlighting a few ongoing regional processes, and by unpacking some of the key actors and factors at work in such processes.

Drawing on neoclassical realism, the article proposes that certain domestic variables – government instability, limited party-system institutionalization, and powerful presidents – have diverted the attention of political elites and foreign policy executives from the challenges generated by a rising Brazil. Crisp-set qualitative comparative analysis is used to test this hypothesis and other alternative explanations for the regional imbalance.
