     Hello,

    Thank you for your question!

    Colonialism was an established policy, which aimed at the occupation and exploitation of a territory, by a state or country foreign to it. This can be for economic, social, etc. reasons.

    Example: Colonization is a consequence of colonialism at the time.

    On the other hand, neocolonialism is a dependence of one state on another state.

    Hope that answers your question,

    let us know if we can help you with anything else! :)
