Details The project aimed to understand the historical process of decolonization in the 20th century world history, instead of limiting it to the independence era after WWII, in terms of the concept of "colonial responsibilities" proposed by the precedent project. The colonial regime worldwide was reorganized and internationalized after WWI to oppose the emerging voice of questioning the "colonial responsibilities." The regime continued to exist even after the independence era of 1960s. through to the end of the "Cold War."
