Development studies is in a state of flux. A new generation of scholars has come to reject what was once regarded as accepted wisdom, and increasingly regard development and globalization as part of a continuum with colonialism, premised on the same reductionist assumption that progress and growth are objective facts that can be fostered, measured, assessed and controlled.

In concluding the book, the eighth and last chapter considers how Africa can move out of the shadow of neo-colonialism and towards developing instead African-oriented solutions to its own development. International Development and Post-colonial Studies.

Today, post-colonialism refers to the interactions between European nations and former colonies and the outcomes of the colonial experience, and several disciplines in the social sciences and humanities include post-colonial studies within the curriculum.

Colonialism is the policy of a country seeking to extend or retain its authority over other people or territories, [need quotation to verify] generally with the aim of economic dominance.

In the process of colonisation, colonisers may impose their religion, economics, and other cultural practices on indigenous foreign administrators rule the territory in pursuit of their interests. In this article, we evaluate the impact of colonialism on development in sub-Saharan Africa.

In the world context, colonialism had very heterogeneous effects, operating through many mechanisms—sometimes encouraging development, sometimes retarding it.

Neocolonialism is the practice of using capitalism, globalisation, cultural imperialism, and conditional aid to influence a developing country instead of the previous colonial methods of direct military control (imperialism) or indirect political control (). Neocolonialism differs from standard globalisation and development aid in that it typically results in a relationship of dependence.
