Ikaweba Bunting

University Press of Mississippi

In “Developmentalism, Tanzania and the Arusha Declaration: Perspectives of an Observing Participant,” Ikaweba Bunting questions existing structures of power through an in-depth exploration of the Arusha Declaration of 1967, a turning point in the history of Tanzania and indeed for Africa as a whole. The Arusha Declaration, brainchild of the late Tanzanian leader Julius Neyerere, was an Africa-centered response to the model of Developmentalism that western governments were pushing onto poor and newly independent non-European nations. A son of the Diaspora and Mrejajiji (returnee), active participant in, and organizer of national development programs, Bunting offers an eyewitness account of the tension between these two approaches: one that reflects an indigenous cultural framework, and—according to the author—a human centered socio-cultural approach; the other is imposed from outside and rooted in the classical development paradigm reliant on the dictates of the IMF and World Bank.

Keywords:   Tanzania, Arusha Declaration, Julius Neyerere, Developmentalism, IMF, World Bank, African Independence
