"A nation is [therefore] a large-scale solidarity, constituted by the feeling of the sacrifices that one has made in the past and of those that one is prepared to make in the future. It presupposes a past; it is summarized, however, in the present by a tangible fact, namely, consent, the clearly expressed desire to continue a common life?, says Ernest Renan, a French philosopher and writer, at a lecture delivered at the Sorbonne, Paris, on March 11, 1882. The African population had been living under submission to the European colonizers for a long time. But the strengthening of their exploitation inherent to the World Wars led to the increase of the opposition to their submission. Thus, Africa had stared a process of decolonization; a large part of the continent gained their independence in almost fifteen years. This essay will examine how the different countries of the African continent attained democracy and how these events can be conveyed.
