The effects of decolonization in Africa
Languages of publication
One of the most important effects of decolonization is the instability of the post-colonial political systems, which entails another, far-reaching consequences. These include deep economic problems, inhibiting growth and widening disparities between the northern and southern part of the globe. These disparities are reflected clearly on the African continent. Experiences a particularly important problem - rapid urbanization, with serious economic and social consequences. Expanding the city, and especially its suburbs, the areas inhabited by people with very low incomes, hence the quality of life in these areas is extremely low. The problem becomes to satisfy their basic human rights, such as access to education, health care and clean water. Welfare system does not exist, and clan traditions that replace it, were superseded by the Western European model of urban life - atomization, focus on obtaining a livelihood for his own family, competition. Regardless of the African region, similar problems exist in almost all major cities in its area.
