Political Transformation

In the political sphere, we consider four aspects as crucial: the form of political domination reflecting steps of intensification (DOMFORM), the level of violence related to colonialism, from the onset to decolonization (VIOL), the degree to which colonial administration created or reinforced division of functions between ethnolinguistic and/or religious groups (ETHNFUNC) and the way the transfer of sovereignty was organized during decolonization (INDTRANS).
