that national self-determination—the positive flip-side to decolonization—was to
prove, if anything, more difficult than throwing off the yoke of Europe.
Disagreements over the structure of an independent India led to its split into rival
nations, India and Pakistan. There were several waves of decolonization, and the
United Nations set up a Trusteeship Council to help guide the process. The
Council disbanded in 1994 after Namibia finally became independent and the
Council itself was ...

... the Americans — that the contradiction between defending freedom at home
and continuing a colonial presence abroad did not hold up well, faced with a
vigorous and global Soviet ideological challenge. By the late 1950s most
Western policymakers had come to the conclusion that colonialism had to go if
they were to preserve any influence outside their own continents. But the
successive waves of decolonization also had a substantial impact on the way the
Cold War was fought.

Independence has been bunched in two big waves, the British and French
decolonizations of Africa in 1960–62 and the Russian decolonization of the early
1990s. If countries tend to be at peace during their first year of independence,
there will be a long phase of adjustment after large numbers of countries have
become independent. Thus for much of the period the world has had an un-
sustainably low incidence of civil war, and at least part of the rising incidence of
civil war has ...

In light of this, pan-pig- mentationalism emerged as a major motivating force to
build solidarity among the colonized peoples during the first and second waves
of decolonization. Initially, the new states of Latin America sought to build a Pan-
American confederation in order to protect their newly won sovereignty.2 Early
pioneers such as Jose de San Martin and Simon Bolivar were recipients of
military and moral support from Haiti, the first black republic in the Western

Analystssuggested inthe early1990s thatthe end ofthe communist
systemamounted, in effect, tothe final wave of decolonization. But that analogy is
misleading. Decolonization meant the recovery of independence by
overseasterritories. Such adivestiture sometimes involved aregimechange in the
metropole, such ashappened withthe collapse ofthe Fourth FrenchRepublic in
1958 orthe Portuguese Revolution of the Carnations in 1974. In any event,

empire. The political decolonization of the European empires took place, with
astonishing rapidity, between the end of the Second World War and the 1960s.
To say that is, we should immediately note, in a sense misleading. There had
been earlier waves of decolonization, as we have seen: the end of European rule
in most of the New World in the late 18th and early 19th centuries, and the
extension of self-government to Britain's settlement colonies, beginning with
Canada in 1839.

Joel Migdal (2009) suggests differentiating at least between three waves of state
formation in the twentieth century beyond classic European models: the post-First
World War wave, the decolonization wave and the end of the Soviet empire. At
each period, different forms of capitalism, national ideologies, norms of nation-
states and power relations between states may explain the emergence of
different processes of state making. Furthermore, timing of creation clearly affects
