African Security and External Interference: exploring the role of a newcomer, China
Speaker(s): Dr Bonnie Ayodele, Professor Zhongying Pang
Recorded on 29 January 2013 in New Theatre, East Building.
As Africa-China ties have grown tighter in the past few years, China’s engagement with the continent has evolved from being mostly economically focused to more sensitive socio-political fields. This talk provides in-depth discussion of African security issues in relation to China’s long-held non-interference policy.
