Philosophische Fakultät III
The article discusses the social conditions of São Tomé e Principe during the country's late colonial period under Portuguese rule and in the early years of decolonization. Particular focus is given to the social aspects of São Tomé e Principe's plantations with a particular focus on the abuse of the laborers. An overview of the self-administration of the country's plantations by the Comissões Administrativas Provisórias (Provisional Committees of Administration), which became the Comités de Acção Política (Committees of Political Action: both CAP), is also presented.
