The historical backdrop of outer colonization of Africa can be dated from old, archaic, or present day history, contingent upon how the term colonization is characterized. In well known speech, conversations of expansionism in Africa ordinarily center around the European triumphs of the New Imperialism and the Scramble for Africa (1884-1914) period, trailed by continuous decolonisation.

The chief forces engaged with the cutting edge colonization of Africa are Britain, France, Germany, Portugal, and Italy 

By 1914, around 90% of Africa was under European control. Notwithstanding, in view of their areas, economies, and political status, Ethiopia and Liberia maintained a strategic distance from colonization. 

Thinking of it as vital for the achievement of their economies, the imperialistic European countries maintained a strategic distance from the by and large colonization of Liberia and Ethiopia—the solitary two African nations they considered reasonable parts in the exchange based world economy. 

In any case, as a trade-off for their obvious "autonomy," Liberia and Ethiopia had to surrender an area, consent to contrasting levels of European monetary control, and become members in European effective reaches. 

Ethiopia was formally perceived as an autonomous state in 1896, after conclusively crushing attacking Italian powers at the Battle of Adwa. During its concise military occupation during World War II, Italy never settled frontier authority over Ethiopia. 

Liberia is known for being one out of just two African nations that were rarely colonized .The sovereign country of ​Liberia is regularly depicted as never colonized in light of the fact that it was made later in 1847 by US. 

In spite of the fact that Liberia got fractional autonomy in 1839 through a federation assertion it took them eight years to turn into a self-autonomous country on 26 July 1847. 

Even after autonomy the country was viewed as a province of America and thusly, it was totally disregarded by the European countries during the scramble for Africa in the 1880's.
