Is Dependency Theory Dead?

Essay from the year 2016 in the subject Sociology - Methodology and Methods, grade: 72, Oxford University (Department of International Development), language: English, abstract: This essay outlines the reasons, both conceptual and empirical, why dependency analysis has ceased to have the impact it once did. Subsequently, it will discuss a number of ways in which dependency analysis can still make significant contributions towards an understanding of development. Today, a cursory search on JSTOR, a popular academic database, reveals that scholarship based on dependency has largely ceased to exist. As Blaney, writing in the 1990s, points out, 'discussion of dependency theory proceeds now mostly as post-mortem' (1996: 460). Given its significant role in the 1960s and 1970s, is dependency dead as an analytical approach to development?
