In the nineteenth century, Europe dominated the world economically, politically and culturally. This dominance is reflected in the possession of colonies. A colony is a territory that is completely under the control of another State. This colonization began in the second half of the nineteenth century and peaked between 1880 and 1914. The First World War marked the end of certainty because Europe was weakened by war and the settlement of disputes. That challenge came as many nations were dominated by European intellectuals.
In this paper we look at the different aspects of colonization such as the reasons for colonization and the different types of colonial domination.
It was the countries of Europe that generally followed the policy of colonization. Europe dominated the world through its high demographic vitality. In 1850, there were 275 million Europeans in 1875, there were 481 million. This population increased because of lower mortality rates and because of the improvement in hygiene and medical advances. Europeans have, throughout the century, emigrated. The countries they generally immigrated to were the United States, Canada, South America and Australia. Between 1800 and 1914, 40 million Europeans left Europe.
