  1. Precolonial centralization will be correlated with access to locally administered infrastructure services in centralized and non-compliant regions. (137)Archibong, Belinda - Explaining divergence in the long-term effects of precolonial centralization..., 2019 - 3 Variables

    This study investigates previous findings that indicate precolonial centralization was beneficial for development in Africa. Using new survey data from public primary schools, the author shows that the failure of leaders of centralized regions to comply with federal regimes was punished with underinvestment in public infrastructure services, hindering development and limiting access to these services in recent populations. The author proposes that the extent to which precolonial centralization was beneficial for development in Africa is mediated by compliance of the local governing bodies with federal regimes.

The relationship between precolonial centralization and access to public infrastructure services will be mitigated by the military president's region of origin, and punishment will be more severe in areas that are not favored.

  8. Precolonial centralization will be positively correlated with public goods provisioning in Africa. (195)Gennaioli, Nicola - The modern impact of precolonial centralization in Africa, 2007 - 2 Variables

    In this study, the authors empirically assess the relationship between precolonial centralization and the implementation of modernization programs by African governments. Their findings indicate that current African countries tend to have better provisioning of public goods (including better access to education, healthcare, and infrastructure) when their ethnic groups' precolonial institutions were more centralized.

  9. ". . . members of precolonially centralized ethnic groups are more likely to hold autocratic values." (12)Chlouba, Vladimir - Early Statehood and Support for Autocratic Rule in Africa, 2021 - 2 Variables

    The authors of this article evaluate how the legacies of early statehood (i.e., precolonial centralized ethnic groups) in Africa continue to impact democratic governance. They find a positive relationship between early states and support for autocratic rule, especially in former British colonies that were highly centralized prior to colonization. They suggest that the transmission of political and cultural norms play an important role in the support for autocracies.

  10. Political centralization among pre-colonial African ethnic institutions is positively associated with contemporary regional development (114).Michalopoulos, Stelios - Pre‐colonial ethnic institutions and contemporary African development, 2013 - 5 Variables

    The researchers test the relationship between political complexity among African pre-colonial ethnic institutions and contemporary economic performance (using light-density data as a proxy). Their tests yield a robust positive association even after controlling for multiple alternative geographic, cultural, and economic variables, which they interpret as underscoring the ongoing importance of ethnic-specific institutions in shaping economic activity in contemporary Africa.
