FRAME: The Global South

Countries that used to be considered as “developing” are essentially countries where the European colonial empires (England, France, Germany, Spain) have strongly attacked the populations, whether we think about the slave trade in Africa or the genocide of Indigenous peoples across the Americas. Over the years, even though some of these countries managed to break the colonial relation, most remain under strong economic, political or military domination by the ex-colonial powers. Even though the wealth of these countries vary greatly they are generally used by G7 countries as a source of cheaplabour. Generally, we find amongst them South American countries and Mexico, Asia except Japan, Africa, the Middle-East and Oceania except Australia and New Zealand.
