Abstract:
Globalization is defined by different scholars in a different way, but most of the definitions argue that the more different peoples interacted, globalization will spread. Moreover, it is possible to say that interaction in any aspect is the core idea of globalization. And this interaction had facilitated in Africa to the emergence of different urban centers before, during and after colonialism. The main purpose of the article will be what were the effects of globalization and urbanization on the post-colonial African societies. As my title indicated, first I will go to discuss globalization focusing on its social aspect, then I will go to discuss urbanization in post-colonial Africa, and finally, I will go to assess the social changes that came due to interaction in the urban centers. In addition, I used the method of comparing the situations of the societies in pre-colonial independent African societies with the post-colonial societies to grasp the real changes.
