Africa and China: Symbiotic or Neocolonial Relationship
Nov 16 @ 12:00 pm – 1:30 pm

Chinese investment on the Afrian continent has increased significantly in recent years. What do African countries and China hope to gain from the relationship? How is the relationship different from typical development assistance? Can African states gain the benefits of economic development without ceding economic or political sovereignty?
