Description

If Africa handles the new scramble wisely, the main winners will be Africans themselves

If Africa handles the new scramble wisely, the main winners will be Africans themselves. The extent of foreign engagement is unprecedented (see Briefing). Start with diplomacy. From 2010 to 2016 more than 320 embassies were opened in Africa, probably the biggest embassy-building boom anywhere, ever. The stereotype of foreigners in Africa is of neocolonial exploiters, interested only in the continent’s natural resources, not its people, and ready to bribe local bigwigs in shady deals that do nothing for ordinary Africans. The stereotype is sometimes true. Far too many oil and mineral ventures are dirty.

But it wouldn't have happened except for the particular economic, social, and military evolution Europe was going through. Europeans in Africa up to the 1880s. By the beginning of the 1880s, only a small part of Africa was under European rule, and that area was largely restricted to the coast and a short distance inland along major rivers such as the Niger and the Congo.

This got mixed up with the more sinister idea of ‘Darkest Africa’ a place where the inhabitants were savage and brutal

The Scramble for Africa (or the Race for Africa) was the proliferation of conflicting European claims to African territory during the New Imperialism period, between the 1880s and the start of World War I. The latter half of the nineteenth century saw the transition from the "informal" imperialism of control through military influence and economic dominance to that of direct rule.
