Scramble for Africa

1880s–1900s Western European colonisation of Africa

The Scramble for Africa, also called the Partition of Africa or the Conquest of Africa, was the division, and colonization of most of Africa by seven Western European powers during a short period known to historians as the New Imperialism. The Berlin Conference of 1884, which regulated European colonization and trade in Africa, is usually referred to as the starting point of the Scramble for Africa.
