In this podcast for http://perspectivesonafrica.wordpress.com, I try to analyse the Scramble for Africa in the Lake Chad region. I especially focus on the example of Borno located in modern-day Nigeria. I want to prove that the Scramble for Borno was a long process starting with the first Franco-British agreement in 1890 and ending with a referendum in 1961. With maps I have created myself, I intend to show that some of the borders of Borno have survived until nowadays. In addition, it will be argued that, even if modified, the territory of Borno has survived the European colonisation.
