China in Africa
The seminar will focus on the complex mix of opportunities and challenges that arises from the growing China-Africa relationship.
China is now Africa’s largest trading partner and an important development partner and investor for the continent. This expanding China-Africa relationship is often presented in simplified terms as either malign or benign to Africa’s development; yet Chinese actors are as diverse as the contexts they operate in, espousing at times competing and contradictory interests.
