This research project investigates the interrelation of knowledge and the exercise of rule, including governmental and private actors, that was established in the colonial states. Through the comparison of German and Japanese colonialism, special features of the scientific colonialism in the late 19th century come into focus. Thereby the complex interplay of imperial order, colonial state, and local actors are analysed.
