Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt

Abstrakt

This project concerns the development that has been going on in Zimbabwe since 1980. Back then the expectations that the country would rise from many years of colonisation and become an effective, independent nation were very high. 28 years later, the Zimbabwean society is in a deep crisis. The economy has broken down and there is a serious lack of food. The government that was once highly regarded is now being criticized for political suppression. The optimistic goals for development have not been achieved. The change that the Zimbabwean society has been undergoing will be explained through an interdisciplinary perspective. The keyword for this explanation is development. There will be a reflection on how this idea of development can be understood according to theories on the developmental field and empirical data concerning the historical and present context of Zimbabwe.
