My final project for Dr. Dixon’s Geography 200 course at Rhode Island College.


When discussing decolonization in Africa, I’ve always thought exclusively about the impact of the colonized country, or maybe the country that was losing grasp on its former empire.  Until this student project, I have never considered the global lives of those who worked for the colonial governments and had their whole worlds upended.  This isn’t to say that colonialism should have continued, but it shows that any change will have unintended consequences as it disrupts the status quo.
