Abstract

Research shows that political elites tend to favour their home region when distributing resources. But what explains how political power is distributed across a country’s regions to begin with? Joan Ricart-Huguet draws on recent research to show that colonial-era education underpins the distribution of political power in post-colonial Africa.
