The Preliminary Hypotheses

1) Major Propositions of Dependency Theory

Major Propositions in Dependency Theory can be explained as follows.

1. Third World countries do not exist in isolation.
2. Within the world political and economic system there is a tremendous amount of interaction among core countries and peoples, and between the core and the periphery.
3. Politics and economics are related.
4. It follows from the relation between politics and economics that underdevelopment is not a natural state, but rather a condition that is caused.
5. In another words, the underdevelopment of weak Third World countries is directly related to, and makes possible development of the powerful countries of the industrialized core.
6. Furthermore, as long as capitalism remains the dominant world economic system, there is no reason for the situation of developed and underdeveloped countries to change.
7. The worldwide system of relationships is duplicated within individual Third World countries. (POSC311, 1999)

It is a voice for small states and a champion for youth empowerment.

Their approach emphasizes country ownership by delivering technical assistance on a demand-driven basis. (Commonwealth Secretariat,Strategic Plan,2013/14
