  • This book is a significant contribution to the relatively unexplored relationship between social cohesion and regional integration in the developing world. Candice Moore, the editor, bemoans the woeful underrepresentation in the academy of the African Union’s (AU) social development programme. Instead, scholars focus on a single aspect of that programme: the AU’s role in conflict resolution (p. 27). By contrast, a broad body of literature exists on social cohesion and European integration (see, e.g., Jeannote, 2000; Héritier, 2001; Jenson and Saint-Martin, 2003; Boucher, 2013). Substantively, the European Community (EC), through the 1986 Single European Act, extended its competence in, among other areas, social cohesion (Dinan, 2005). The 1989 EC Social Charter and the Social Policy of the 1992 Maastricht Treaty, among others, further significantly augmented Europe’s competence in social policy (Whelan & Maître, 2005). Consequently, the Council of Europe and the European Union (EU) emphasise social cohesion in the formulation of public policy, and the EU even prioritises the EU Social Cohesion Funds in its budget (Jeannotte, 2000).
