The [Seychelles][1], which first became a British colony in 1903. It only has a population of 90,000, so maybe it only deserves an honorable mention. Before this time, it was part of the French colony of Maritius. The island nations were originally uninhabited, allowing for a larger percentage of the population to be of European descent. The people of the nation today are mostly mixed heritage creoles and only about 5% of the population is Gran'bla ("big whites"), giving the native population now near full control of the country. The Seychelles were granted independence and entry into the Commonwealth in 1976, but this did not solve inequality problems. The nation is notable for having the highest GINI score or income inequality in the world. The nation suffered a coup and a communist dictatorship for several years, but since 2011 has introduced reforms to proper democratic participation and market liberalization.

AnotherOne example is the Russian population in Kazakhstan. (The USSR transferred large populations around, so this is probably not the only example.) Settlement started in the 19th century, but increased in the 20th century. According to Wikipedia, by 1917, 30% of the population was Russian.

Many more Russians arrived in the years 1953-1965,during the so-called Virgin Lands Campaign of Soviet premier Nikita Khrushchev. Still more settlers came in the late 1960s and 70s, when the government paid bonuses to workers participating in a program to relocate Soviet industry close to the extensive coal, gas, and oil deposits of Central Asia. By 1979 ethnic Russians in Kazakhstan numbered about 5,500,000, almost 40% of the total population.

Following independence, Kazakhstan instituted policies to reaffirm its cultural dominance, such as requiring Kazakh be spoken as the only official language. Ethnic Russians found the policy discriminatory and now the percentage of Russians stands at 30%. Repatriation of Russians was discussed with the Russian government, but found to be inappropriate. At this time, the issue remains unresolved and is a source of conflict and political dispute. So large and entrenched of a minority group is considered to be nearly impossible to resettle.

I'm not sure about the international reaction, but colonialism was very common in 1903, so I doubt it got much mention. Thethe policies of the USSR were routinely condemned in the West, although many still supported them as a positive quality of ruthless pragmatism.
