The '''2000s''' was the decade that followed the [[Second Wizarding War]] with [[Lord Voldemort]] from [[1995]]-[[1998]], unlike the [[First Wizarding War]] which ended abruptly on the 31st October [[1981]] where although Voldemort's body was vanquished his spirit lived on for many years, this time however Voldemort was killed for good and the [[Order of the Phoenix]] and their allies won.

The 2000s saw many positive changes in the wizarding community of Britain, such as the removal of [[Dementors]] from [[Azkaban]], massive reforms in the Ministry included the removal of pro-pureblood laws and discrimination laws against [[Half-breeds]] were abolished.

The following events occurred in the 2000s:

The 2000s was the decade that followed the Second Wizarding War with Lord Voldemort from 1995-1998, unlike the First Wizarding War which ended abruptly on the 31st October 1981 where although Voldemort's body was vanquished his spirit lived on for many years, this time however Voldemort was killed for good and the Order of the Phoenix and their allies won.

The 2000s saw many positive changes in the wizarding community of Britain, such as the removal of Dementors from Azkaban, massive reforms in the Ministry included the removal of pro-pureblood laws and discrimination laws against Half-breeds were abolished.
