EDE K. B. ;


This paper is concerned with the phenomenon of regional inequalities in Third World countries. In view of the lack of an adequate model of development, and thus of an acceptable general formulation of Third World regional inequalities, a more particularistic analytic approach is suggested. This approach treats the phenomenon as the outcome of the articulation of exogenous political economic forces with the social and ecological characteristics of specific Third World societies. The approach is demonstrated via an historical analysis of regional inequality in Uganda. In conclusion, the implications of this approach for policy and further research are assessed. (Revue).
