This article reviews the literature concerning the emergence of developmental states in Africa and gives an overview of debates on the usefulness of the ‘East Asian model’ for sub‐Saharan Africa. The conclusion highlights how historic developmental states were often the product of trial and error rather than a grand plan; the concept of a developmental state therefore often works less as a model and more as a ‘buzzword’ with its own uses and effects.
