The Role of the ECOWAS in Addressing Challenges of Ineffective Regulation of Transnational Oil Corporations in Nigeria
Zarma, Rahina 1988-
The thesis explores the potential of a regulatory oversight role for the ECOWAS aimed at driving further effectiveness of regulatory framework for transnational corporations in Nigeria, as well as ameliorating constitutional concerns that hinder effective protection for victims of environmental pollution. It reviews constitutional failures and judicial obstacles within Nigeria that hinder effective protection of victims of environmental pollution and reviews specific regulatory concerns within the Nigerian regulatory framework which require reform. It argues that constitutional and regulatory failures in Nigeria as well as the government’s attitude towards enforcing existing regulation justify the need for a regulatory oversight framework.
