Assessing The Effects of Kenya’s And Tanzania’s Economic Interests in the East African Community (EAC) Between the Periods 1967-1977 And 2000-2016

Abstract:

Regional integration has been a constant feature in East African region’s states relations. After independence Kenya, Uganda and Tanzania formed the East African Community (EAC) which later collapsed. Attempts to revive integration were successful, culminating in the revival of the community. This study looked at integration of the East African Community during these two periods. The study also focused on the economic interests pursued by the region’s biggest economies namely Kenya and Tanzania within the context of the East African Community. Thirdly, the study looked at factors underpinning these economic interests, and their impact on various levels of integration. The findings of this research indicate that pursuit of economic interests in the EAC, by the two countries has had a dual effect on various aspects of integration, and a net negative effect on overall integration. The main recommendation of this study is strengthening of key EAC institutions, and dispute resolution mechanisms in addition to ensuring a people driven integration process.
