This issue of the Policy Journal is addressing the timely issue of regional integration. East Africa has been moving steadily to ever closer union since the re-establishment of the East African Community in 1999. From an original membership of three countries – Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda, the Community has grown to five countries, with the inclusion of Burundi and Rwanda since 2007. Sudan and South Sudan are also being considered for membership in the Community.
In this edition of the journal, we are considering the issue of regional integration from various tangents. For example, musicians and other entertainers have been quietly (some would argue loudly) integrating the region for decades. They have sought fame and fortune throughout the region with no regard for borders. The new generations are following their illustrious forbears.
