Abstract

Migration, social mobility, and integration of new populations in late eighteenth-century Europe resulted in an expansion of diversity, which contributed to abolition and culminated in full civil rights between 1791 and 1799. This revolutionary experiment in equality faced both domestic and multinational opposition, which led to the genocidal purge of diversity in Europe and the wider world during the Napoleonic Era.

Keywords: Diversity, Europe, Migration, Genocide, Atlantic World, Revolutionary and Napoleonic era, Law and Society, War and Society
