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 Ecomic Partnership Agreements in terms of the political and ecomic implications of the agreements on Nigeria's n-oil exports sub-sectors. Set within one of the main objectives of the Ecomic Partnership Agreements, he also interrogates the prospects and challenges of regional integration in Africa under the regime of transnational accumulation, which the Ecomic Partnership Agreements represents.
