De la question coloniale chez les anciens et néo-institutionnalistes

Listed author(s):
  • Abdallah Zouache

This article examines how the colonial issue is considered in old and new institutionalism. In contrast with new institutionalism, old institutionalism examines colonialism in a racial framework. This article nevertheless reveals a conceptual convergence between both traditions around a culturalist explanation of institutional dynamics. Old and new institutionalism insists on the religious culture as an filter which led to the emergence of pro-growth institutions. This convergence illustrates the ambigüous relationship between race and culture in the institutionalist tradition.
