Head of Centre, A/P Mely Caballero-Anthony participated in a Seminar on ‘Region-building and Regional Integration in Africa’ organised by the Centre for Conflict Resolution (CCR) in Cape Town, South Africa on 28–30 April 2014.
The seminar, which brought together about 30 African and international scholars, policymakers, and civil society actors, sought to examine systematically, the challenges of region-building and regional integration in Africa over the last five decades, with a view to advancing the continental project of peace, security and socio-economic development.

The seminar focused on four key areas: (1) themes and concepts of region-building and regional integration in Africa; (2) political economy of region-building processes on the continent; (3) the role, challenges, and programmes of Africa’s sub-regional organisations in the areas of economic integration, democratic governance and regional security; and (4) potential lessons for Africa from experiences of regionalism in Europe, Southeast Asia and Latin America.
A/P Caballero-Anthony delivered a presentation on ‘ASEAN: From Region Building to Community Building’.
