Development Theory

Discipline: Political Science

The industrialized nations represent the most advanced form of society, and other nations are categorized in terms of their approximation to this model.

They can thus be judged more or less developed, and their efforts should be directed towards approaching as close as possible to the 'developed' model in their political, social, and economic institutions.
