June 26 @ 9:00 am - June 29 @ 1:30 pm CDT

China’s ascendancy as a dominant economic and political global power has been the subject of much scholarly and political debate. More specifically, China’s renewed interest in Africa continues to beg the question, what is China’s Africa strategy or Africa – China Strategy? Some scholars suggest that China’s strategic interests in Africa are purely economic, resource extraction, and exploitation, which has led to renewed concerns about neo-colonialism. Other questions raised include how this arrangement will benefit African countries engaged with China. This course seeks to examine these issues and better understand how China’s engagement in Africa may have a consequential impact on the continent.
