Effective market economies are essential but require functioning and capable state and societal institutions in order to operate and grow. Critics claim that assigning an active developmental role especially to the contemporary African state is anachronistic (Kütting, 2004 in Oosterveer, 2009). A neo-developmental state demands strong governmental organisations, which becomes increasingly unlikely under the present economic and international conditions (Callaghy, 1993; Lewis, 1996). Instead of strengthening the African states’ capacity to intervene they suggest to limit their role even further and rely more on other societal actors through network governance.

Thus, a developmental state is broadly understood as one that shows a clear commitment to a national development agenda, that has solid capacity and reach, and that seeks to provide economic growth as well as poverty reduction and the provision of public services (Menocal and Fritz, 2006). Referring to Africa specifically, Mkandawire (1998) gives the definition of a developmental state as a state whose ideological underpinnings are developmental and that seriously attempts to deploy its administrative and political resources to the task of economic development.
