The Internationalization of Colonialism

By 1950, Britain had reached the point where proposals to deal with Ewe grievances were being framed, not because they were likely to have an impact in Africa, but because they were needed to placate hostile international opinion and prevent United Nations interference in Togoland. The creation of the Combined Commission for Technical Co-operation in Africa south of the Sahara (CCTA) stemmed from a similar realisation, not that conditions in Africa required new initiatives, but that measures were necessary to fend off increasing international involvement in the technical aspects of African development. As such, far from marking the culmination of technical co-operation between France and Britain, the CCTA was born from a realisation that technical co-operation had had little or no impact within Africa, and that there was consequently a danger of new efforts, backed by American finance, increasingly being made by international organisations.
