A region and People on the Move….

West Africa recorded a number of milestones in 2008. The region as a whole moved closer towards becoming more integrated through the crafting of a long term vision“ECOWAS vision 20/20: towards a democratic and prosperous community”, and a renewed attempt to accelerate andpopularize the ECOWAS protocol on Free Movement, Right of Residence and Establishment. Further, a number of key actions such as the mitigation of the crisis in Guinea Bissau and the largely peaceful elections in Ghana advanced the cause of consolidating democratic governance, peace and security in the region.
