Research project: CRITICAL ASSESSMENT OF ECOWAS LEGAL FRAMEWORKS ON INTEGRATION, COMPETITION AND CONSUMER PROTECTION

Abstract

Through comparative study and qualitative research analysis, this work will assess the extent of commercial/trade, business ethics, consumer protection and regulations within the ECOWAS. It will focus on enforcement options and remedies available under public, private and regional laws in operation within the Community. In doing so, reference will be made to the strong impact of Statute of General Application giving  all laws in operation up till 1900 in England  persuasive authority on a large chunk of West African legal system. This work will also critically assess the jurisdiction and the effectiveness of the Community Court of justice on defaults or contraventions leading to breach of consumer rights within the region.
