A presumption of compliance with transnational norms underlies the conception of regional integration processes and measures. The African integration progress has over the years experienced an acute degree of non-compliance by member states at both sub-regional and continental levels. This situation has stymied the integration process and also raised the importance of approaching the issue of non-compliance from a contextual, pragmatic angle. This article discusses this issue by raising some of the critical challenges obfuscating compliance with regional integration standards in Africa. The article explores some structural measures that can better enhance compliance with regional integration and standards in Africa.
