Influence of Colonialism on Development Patterns

In what ways does the history of colonialism shape current development patterns?

Using a concrete example of a country or region, detail the long-term influence of colonialism:

  • What do neoclassical and Keynesian theories imply for international development?
  • Critically examine the ways in which the concept of ‘development’ has been understood in the Marxian literature.
  • What was the impact of the Washington Consensus on international development patterns and power relations between and within countries? Use an example to illustrate your argument.
