Half a century separates us from the great wave of independence. Similarly, in terms of mentality, for many contemporaries, colonization and imperialism are phenomena that Europeans should not be proud of.

For most Europeans today, the colonial era is a distant time, both in time and in attitude. This is what constitutes as the backdrop to the debate about responsibility. In many respects, these are words that are defamatory in terms of values and principles such as racism, Nazism or communism, with its attendant violence and destruction, and disregard for individual rights.

Why did so many Europeans want to celebrate and participate in colonization in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries? How may we explain that what seems to have been a time of colonization was followed by a period of inevitable decolonization?
