    The presentation wants to link three issues : (i) human security, (ii) regional integration and (iii) African development. The main argument is that human security needs to be looked at a regional rather than national level in Africa and that regional integration if driven by human security concerns has a lot of potential for development in Africa. First, the problem of human security in Africa will be discussed. Secondly, the link between regional integration and human security will be explored and thirdly a regional approach to human security in Africa will be advocated. Finally, it will be argued that TICAD should play a role in developing visions, monitoring schemes, institutional and social support for a Human Security driven regional integration in Africa.
