China is now the African continent’s most important development partner. Engagement with the emerging superpower is shaping both government decision-making, and the development of entire economic sectors across the continent.
The implications of the relationship for Africa’s future are staggering. Yet, there is still far too little discussion on the continent about who actually decides how to cooperate with China, and where the limits of this decision-making lie. Governments are key decision-makers in this field, but how much power do they actually have, and how does this power intersect with African societies’ right to shape their own future?
The South African Institute of International Affairs would like to invite you to a webinar exploring this intersection. The event will feature cutting-edge insights from some of the world’s leading experts on China-Africa relations.
