How did the Berlin Conference of 1884 affect Africa?
The Berlin Conference of 1884-1885 formally regulated European colonial efforts in the Scramble for Africa and basically overrode the autonomy and self-governance of African peoples. It divided up European ownership of territories on the continent and set up regulations for claiming territories that led to increased aggression in colonization. The policies established at the Berlin Conference continue to have a negative impact on Africa today.
