China-Africa: a maturing relationship? Growth, change and resilience

These policy essays explores industrialisation, employment dynamics, conservation, governance and peace and security

Abstract

In December 2015, Chinese and African heads of state and government officials met in Johannesburg for the second summit of the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) , the latest in a series of ongoing efforts to build and maintain strong links between China and Africa. This set of policy essays, based on presentations and speeches given at a DEGRP workshop held in parallel with the FOCAC event, addresses many of the issues discussed at the summit.

Featuring contributions from academic experts, as well as a keynote speech from ex-World Bank Chief Economist Justin Yifu Lin, it explores topics such as industrialisation, employment dynamics, conservation, governance, and peace and security, all in the context of changing China-Africa relations.
