This chapter addresses the tortuous paths of late Portuguese colonialism in negotiating and putting forward a development project that would be presented as the raison d'etre of the Portuguese presence in Africa. More precisely, the authors interrogate how the notion of “development” was articulated to and completely re-framed by the discourse of Luso-tropicalism, a broader political and anthropological discourse constituting the very fabric of Portuguese rule and racial politics. Their study is based on the analysis of the Overseas General Bulletin (Boletim Geral do Ultramar, 1945-1970), a central vehicle of colonial propaganda, and on publications of the Institute for Overseas Research (Junta de Investigações do Ultramar), created in 1936.

Keywords:   Portuguese colonialism, Luso-tropicalism, Institute for Overseas Research, Portuguese Africa, Colonial development, Racial politics, Colonial propaganda
