Post Colonial Chapter 10

I’m working on a Writing question and need guidance to help me study.

I will provide textbook with login to answer questions below

Chapter 10: Postcolonial and decolonial approaches

  1. What is ‘settler colonialism’?
  2. Define ‘subaltern’ and briefly explain its significance.
  3. Why did Frantz Fanon argue that colonialism represents a totalizing form of violence?
  4. How did European powers assert imperial or colonial control politically, economically, culturally, and socially?
  5. Compare and contrast postcolonial and decolonial approaches to International Relations with three of the following approaches: realism, liberalism, Marxism, and feminism. In comparison with the three approaches you select, what are the advantages and disadvantages of adopting postcolonial and decolonial approaches?
  6. What is the difference between colonialism and ‘neo-colonialism’? In your answer, provide a specific example of neo-colonialism and explain its impact on the relevant country.
  7. According to this chapter, what are the three main areas of research of postcolonial and decolonial approaches to International Relations? Among these, which do you believe offers the most significant contribution to International Relations as a discipline, and why?
  8. Define the debate between those who advocate the use of the term ‘failed states’ and those who reject it. Do you think this concept is useful for explaining international relations? If so, why? If not, why not? Is there a way to modify this concept to better satisfy the concerns of postcolonial and decolonial scholars?
  9. In what ways do international institutions reflect the legacies of colonialism? Offer two specific examples and explain how these institutions could be modified to better reflect the interests of non-Western states.
