The State of East Africa Report 2013 goes further than merely describing East Africa from a statistical perspective. The Future of Inequality in East Africa, interrogates a fundamental question of great relevance to the process of regional integration, namely, to what extent are the fundamental objectives of the Treaty for the Establishment of the East African Community of promoting ‘balanced and harmonious growth’, ‘equitable distribution of benefits’ and ‘people-centered’ integration, being achieved.

Speech by AMB. DR. Richard Sezibera EAC SEC. GEN.
“The past six years, have seen the EAC Secretariat and the Society for International Development (SID) work together. Our two institutions have established a strong partnership in promoting effective dialogue revolving around regional integration and its consequences for the citizens of East Africa. Reports so far published over the previous years have gone along way in enhancing the quality of the discussions about regional integration and have helped to widen the participation in that conversation. In the same context the reports have successfully served as a contribution towards making the East African Community (EAC) truly people-centered. Over the years SID has become an important voice in providing economic, political and social analysis on the challenges and opportunities that regional integration presents for all of us. I must acknowledge that The State of East Africa 2012 is just one of many informative and critical publications provided by SID that interrogates many of the questions that regular East Africans ask themselves each day regarding the benefits of regional integration.”
