Nationalism developed and there was a lot of conflict in the late 19th century, especially between Britain, France, and Germany.
It has been decided: The Treaty of Berlin will be set in motion
Chancellor Otto Von Bismarck called for a conference in 1884 to manage the hurry to colonize.
There were 4 major points to be discussed: European nations were interested in being given access to important trade routes, they needed to talk about the slave trade that was going on in some parts of Africa, a ban was put on importing firearms into Africa and who got what in Africa.
The Treaty of Berlin was the end result of the conference.
