The problem of regional integration that West Africa has experienced for many years bears witness to the difficulties faced by African societies in finding adequate solutions within the constraining framework of post-colonial States.  However, regional cooperation in West Africa is still only approached from an institutional perspective.  Field dynamics, economic actors and their transactions, and rapid demographic changes are forces that define spaces that regional policies seldom take into account.  These spaces, which are recomposed by fluctuating political alliances and crises, give birth to new regional integration schemes.

A better knowledge and understanding of these regional changes is essential to implement development policies that are more coherent and better adapted to the necessities of an innovating entrepreneurial sector and improved economic performances.
