    Nigeria and south africa Nigeria and south africa Presentation Transcript

    • A review of key concepts.
    • What it means: A country or region governed internally by a foreign power. Example: When a stronger country comes into a weaker country and takes over their government. All the people know exactly what is going on, it is not a secret that the weaker country is being controlled by the stronger one.
    • What it means: A country or territory with its own internal government but under the control of an outside power. Example: When the leader of the weaker country continues to be the leader, but they are controlled by the stronger country. (Think of a puppet).
    • What it means: An area in which an outside power claims exclusive investment or trading privileges. Example: US had a sphere of influence in Liberia, what that meant is that Liberia was only allowed to trade with the US, but Liberia still had some control over the trade.
    • What it means: Independent but less developed nations controlled by private business interests rather than by other governments. Example: Instead of a stronger country controlling the trade of a weaker nation a business controlled the trade.
    •   Used political leaders that were already in charge. The stronger country would train the local political leaders to use the form of government they wanted the weaker country to use. Indirect Control   Viewed Africans as unable to handle their own government, and the stronger country would step in and rule. They tried to provide for people’s needs but didn’t give them any rights. Direct Control
    • What it means: Belief that Africans were like children and needed to be governed in a “fatherly” way. This was part of Direct Control where Europeans brought in their own government and ruled African countries with a European method.
    • What it means: This was a policy/belief that all Africans should become like the French (or whatever European nation was controlling). All schools, courts, and businesses were set up in the same fashion as French schools, courts, and businesses. French believed that African culture was inferior to their own.
