presentation

The proposed investigation intends to study the impact of Diamang - the Diamond Company of Angola in the occupation and development of the territory of Lunda, where this diamond mining concessionaire was established in 1917. In order to establish administrative posts and indigenous labour, whose influence in the Angolan northeast is considered relevant for the global comprehension of Portuguese colonial heritage.The study tries to understand the occupation of the territory as a consequence of the exploration of diamonds and what is the current reflection of this settlement. It is proposed a critical analysis of the extent and influence of colonial strategies in development models currently practiced in Angola.
