Social Reasons

  • Discrimination against other nationals across Europe, such as British discrimination towards the Irish
  • Working class opposes wishes of the bourgeoisie (class that controls the means of production)
  • Opposition to harsh working conditions, slavery and indentured servitude.

  • Potato famine caused an increase in food prices due to lower supply of food. Most affected are urban masses and the poor
  • Laws in Europe beneffitted landowners and factory workers
  • Bourgeoisie sought to maintain power and profits.

Economic Reasons

  • Great European Famine leads to the decrease in food availability across Europe. Millions end up starving.
  • Bad crop harvests and blight lead to massive movements of people from the country to the cities
  • Urban cities plagued with disease due to unsanitary conditions

Environmental Issues

  • Disenfranchisment of the people: most of a nation's citizens could not vote
  • Only taxpayers and landowners allowed to vote
  • Monarchs at the time wanted to remain in control
  • Legislative bodies were not representative of the people, and focused on their own special interests.

Political Reasons

  • Discrimination against Catholics in Great Britain
  • Transition from artisan work to factory work
  • Spread of ideas of revolution and workers' rights in the aftermath of the French Revolution
  • Liberal and Radical segments of society seeking more rights from Conservative and Reactionary elements of society.
