 Cooperation in East Africa started many years ago. Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda in particular have had cooperation since the early 20th Century. For example, there was the customs union between Uganda and Kenya in 1917, where as, Tanganyika joined in 1927.
 The East African Community itself had a long history too. It was originally founded in 1967 but, it collapse in 1977, partly because of disagreements in the political philosophies of the three countries; dictatorship under Idi Amini Dada in Uganda, socialism in Tanzania and capitalism in Kenya. Later on, president Mwinyi of Tanzania, Daniel Arap Moi of Kenya and Yoel Museveni of Uganda signed the Treaty of East African Cooperation in Arusha Tanzania on 30th November 1993. They established a tripartite cooperation the cooperation embraced many areas including political social, cultural, research and technology, defence, security, legal and financial affairs. On 30th Nov. 1999, a treaty for the -re – establishment of the East African Community was signed and it came into force on 7th July 2000. Burundi and Rwanda joined the East African community in 2007.
 There are governance structures that serve the East African Community. The East African court of justice in the judicial arm of the community. The court oversees the interpretation and application of the 1999 Treaty that established the EAC. The legislation arm of the community is the East African legislative Assembly (EALA). The Assembly has 27 members countries. One of the functions of EALA is to debate and approve the budget of the community. Since inauguration, the EALA has had several sittings in Arusha, Nairobi and Kampala.
 Though faced with numerous challenges, the EAC has had some achievement and has outlined some future plans. One key achievement is the introduction of the East African passport which was launched on 1st April 1999. This passport was introduced in order to make border crossing for East African easier. It is available at the headqucters of the respective immigration departments in Dar es salaam, Nairobi and Kampala.
