Article

The Berlin West Africa Conference of 1884–5, as it was called, ushered in what became known as the New Imperialism. While the first waves of European expansion had focused on the Americas and Asia, the third one concentrated on Africa, largely ignored since the conclusion of the Atlantic slave trade at the beginning of the 19th century. Its imperialist effects served as a prelude to the colonial partitioning of Africa.
