French Colonization: The colonization of French Africa was a major part of France's foreign policy from the 1700s to the early 1800s. France created colonies in West, Central and East Africa, as well as in the Indian Ocean and the Caribbean. Dutch Colonization: The Dutch colonization of the Americas began in the 16th century and lasted until the 19th century. The Dutch were mainly interested in trading with the natives and establishing settlements, rather than conquering them outright. Colonialism: Colonialism is the practice of one country taking control of another country and using it and its resources for their own benefit. It has been used throughout history by many countries, including France and the Netherlands.
