Migration and Regional Integration in West Africa explores how different immigration policies and multiple monetary zones have hindered sustainable cross-border socio-economic interactions in West Africa. Since previous empirical efforts have largely neglected how the migration process is sustained at "home" and "abroad", Adeniran examines the significance of cross-border networking in the process of identity integration within the ECOWAS sub-region. Studying the informal cross-border interactions along the Nigerian-Ivorian migratory corridor by the Ejigbo-Yoruba, Adeniran believes these migrants have persistently enabled the processes of regional integration and inter-community development within the sub-region. Their interactions have accounted for the harmonization of distinctive dual identities within the transnational social space, and suggest that related cross-border networking pattern should be promoted in order to attain the goal of a borderless ECOWAS sub-region.
