EAI is a problem domain (need to integrate systems) whereas Web services is a set of technologies (SOAP, WSDL, UDDI). The problem of Enterprise Application Integration is often tackled with solutions based on web services. Business process management is simply a more specific kind of EAI problem and is also often solved with products relying on web services under the hood.
