Explain the difference between indirect rule and direct rule during the New Imperialism.

(1) Answers

Indirect rule is where the colonizing country only rules from afar. What they do is that they just appoint a native leader. The problem with this is the discrimination among class members in the country due to the fact that native leaders often prioritize their self-interest and also those who were within their circle. Meanwhile, the direct rule is where the people of the colonized country are under the rule of the mother country. This means that people in colonized country somewhat enjoys the same privileges of a citizen of the mother country.
