now 1588: Defeat of the Spanish Armada - Britain rules the sea (Royal Navy) and develops its trade (the empire on which the sun never sets...) East India Company is created to administer colonies and overseas trade The Puritans fled from religious persecution, sailed with the Mayflower from England to America Britain became the most important colonial power in Europe Declaration of Independence makes England lose its colonies in North America British Empire continued to grow in Asia and Africa Fall of the Empire Treaty of Versailles awarded further territories to Britain "The British Commonwealth" is officially created 1600: 1620: 1700: 1776: 1800: 1900-1947: 1918: 1949: Today aims: Promoting human rights and world peace, organising programmes, economy, education and government as central fields, tackle climate change, threats of terrorism, crime and violence Main information: The British Empire is a term used to describe all the places around the world that were once ruled by Britain. Built over many years, it grew to include large areas of North America, Australia, New Zealand, Asia and Africa, as well as small parts of Central and South America, too. At its height in 1922, it was the largest empire the world had ever seen, covering around a quarter of Earth's land surface and ruling over 458 million people. Reasons of colonialism -> exploiting resources -> spreading their religion -> earning more money -> Creation of trade links & boosting economy The second British Empire: Although Britain had lost a huge part of its North American territories, it claimed new lands in the late 18th Century and early 19th Century, forming the 'Second British Empire. Colonies were founded in parts of Australia, and later Trinidad and Ceylon (now Sri Lanka), Singapore and Hong Kong (China) as well as other parts of Asia. From 1881 to 1902, Britain competed with other European empire-builders in what became known as the 'Scramble for Africa'. By the early 1900s, huge parts of Africa - including Egypt, Kenya, Nigeria and large areas of southern Africa - all came under -> Getting save with strategic security -> political reasons - power -> secure wealth -> educate the language to everyone -> Expansion Colonies in order to benefit and gain economically Legacies of colonialism British rule. The British Empire was larger and more powerful than ever... and politically -> Gain power, economic dominance, political dominance, seeking to benefit from the colonies and resources -> Religious tensions in Nigeria -> Egoistic and racist way of thinking -> The United Kingdom still retained fourteen territories, they still have colonies -> monuments and sights -> Empire caused large migration across the world -> English language as lingua franca -> New trade routes 57 The British Empire and indigenous (einheimisch) peoples: The power and wealth that Britain gained as it built its empire came at a price, and tragically, the price was paid largely by the indigenous peoples-tribes and communities who had lived in Britain's so-called 'new' lands for centuries. The Empire in which the sun never sets The unjust treatment of indigenous peoples ran the course of the British Empire. For example, in North America, local people were taken advantage of by greedy traders, robbed of their land and even faced violence and death at the hands of British settlers. During the Second World War, India suffered some of the worst famines (lack of food) in human history, partly caused by the British government taking vital supplies away from the Indian people to support the war effort elsewhere causing the death of millions. Indigenous peoples in Africa were affected in their millions. The British took valuable materials like gold, salt and ivory out of Africa and sent it back to Britain, and elsewhere. The British were also heavily involved in the Transatlantic Slave Trade in West Africa Many indigenous peoples, including Indigenous Australians, lost not just their land, food and possessions, but their traditions, too. When British settlers arrived, they forcibly replaced the beliefs, language and traditions of indigenous populations with their own, removing their cultural identities. positive impacts: - the British earned money - they created trade links - they received natural resources - English speaking people all over the world Governments and settlers drew up new borders and land boundaries that split the local people into new countries and categories that didn't represent them or reflect their heritage, history and customs. In some countries, these changes are still a source of conflict, even now. Today, many indigenous communities are trying to reconnect with the heritage the British tried to erase, by celebrating their cultural identities and protecting them for the future. - huge influence on many countries → creating monuments independance state Negative impacts: - they manipulated India - they started thinking too well of themselves - they had a racist way of thinking (oppressors) - they had many slaves - all their colonies lost their culture => white supremacy ! Treatment of the indigenous -> Suppression, oppression & subordination -> The indigenous have been robbed their land, resources & culture -> Discrimination -> Racism -> Prejudices -> Exploitation -> The Britons considered the indigenous as subordinated, worthless, despicable and not educated -> The empire enhanced welfare and the living conditions of the indigenous people Commonwealth Justification The Commonwealth of Nations is a loose association of sovereign states formed primarily by the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and its former -> They inhabit most of the world, power over the world -> Conceited and praise by themselves -> Different races have different values, worth and characteristics -> The British raise above everyone -> The British power is based on technological evidence -> Blinded and convinced by themselves Decline of the Empire -> Promises they could not keep - freedom & peace -> After the two World Wars the Britains got weak -> The Britains were not able to take care of the health and food for their colonies Slave Trade Triangle Is a historical term indicating trade among three ports or regions. Triangular trade usually evolves when a region has export commodities that are not required in the region from which its major imports come. The use of African slaves was fundamental to growing colonial cash crops, which were exported to Europe. European goods, in turn, were used to purchase African slaves, who were then brought on the sea lane west from Africa to the Americas, the so-called Middle Passage. A classic example is the colonial molasses trade. -> Decolonisation started -> Independence movements began -> Britains lost their power over many colonies -> Today most former colonies are now part of the Commonwealth colonies.

In a multi- ethnic-society, the country consists of & fosters different believes, races, religions, values, characters, identities and traditions.

Pakistani, Indian, People from the former British empire, People from the Commonwealth -> After the Second World War thousands immigrated to the UK (Commonwealth) - During this time period they were more than welcome owing to the shortage of workers The UK needed employees - Members from the Commonwealth were granted special rights and it was easier for them -> However, restrictions were made (1971) due to the shortage that has been overcome - UK immigration policy AIM was to limit the immigration - People were being made redundant - They implemented special requirements: Language, Citizen Test, time…..
