ON THE CONCEPT OF POLITICAL UNDER – DEVELOPMENT IN THE CONTEXT OF THE THIRD WORLD ( WITH SPECIAL REFERENCE TO AFRICAN CASE)

Auther : Fayez Baktash

Political “under – development” and “development” are the concept provided

By the develop mentalist school in the order to define the specificity of political Structure of The Third World countries . If these nations are of some interest in that respect , nevertheless this interest is limited to the primary level of investigation since any conseptualisation of the question cannot ignore two major aspects which are significantly disregarded by developmentalism. These are the nature of the social structure of so called under – developed societies on the one hand , and the type of relations linking these societies to other societies and specially to the developed ones on the other hand.

More over these two dimensions are not separated but connected together and disclosure of their very nature leads us to the rejection of develop mentalist approach . Studying America goes through the understanding of the real history of these societies , as well as of the world Capital list System into which they are integrated, and of the specific impact of this forced integration on their social structure .

There fore, any elaboration of the nation of political under – development, should not deal in our view , as much with the empirical characteristics underlined by develop mentalists, but should rather focus on the substance of the matter , this substance is to be detected theoretically , so as to explain these characteristics which are only the apparent manifestation of it . In this perspective , political development does not seem to be possible through a evolution from the prenewton era to the affluent society , but has to be actually the product of a conscious move towards delinking away from the world system. Henceforth , political under-development is a lack of political capability , a shortage of sovereignty due to the fact that the peripheric state is absent from the decional stratigical level of power . Consequently a first level of classification of political systems, regional relay system and independentist system .
