Chinese and African Perspectives on China in Africa

Chinese and African Perspectives on China in Africa

Edited by Axel Harneit-Sievers, Stephen Marks, Sanusha Naidu



   

The deepening engagement of China in Africa since the end of the cold war has led to debates about the evolving nature of this relationship. Yet the focus of analysis has largely been confined to the interactions between states. Little attention has been paid to the growing dialogue between Chinese and African civil society organisations. This collection of essays, written by scholars and activists, explores the interaction between African and Chinese non-state actors and argues that the future of Africa-China relations rests on including such voices if a robust and vibrant engagement and a meaningful relationship are to be sustained.

Chinese and African Perspectives on China in Africa assesses China's activities in Africa through patterns of investment, legal cooperation, effects on the environment, trade, aid and labour links, questions of peace, security and stability, the African Union response, possible regulatory interventions and the future strengthening of an Africa–China CSO dialogue.

'This is a thoughtfully structured book, backed by notable contributions from African and Chinese scholars, which provides new data and real insights into the burgeoning relationship between China and Africa'
Dr Chris Alden, London School of Economics

'Any book on Africa-China relations which steers away from hegemonic western perspectives and paradigms is welcome. This is one such book'
Issa G. Shivji, Mwalimu Nyerere Professor of Pan-African Studies, University of Dar es Salaam

'This volume adds valuable new insights to the necessary ongoing debate. It brings together a variety of different perspectives and approaches, both from Chinese and African points of view, on a wide range of themes, and helps us understand the range of African responses to China's role'
Dr Henning Melber, The Dag Hammarskjöld Foundation
