Upcoming China-Africa events

Tomorrow at the Center for Global Development in Washington, there will be a discussion marking the launch of the new, imaginatively titled book China into Africa (Brookings Institution Press). Note the radical departure from China in Africa, which is what all previous volumes have been called! The website says that the event is booked out.

Meanwhile the Africa Asia Centre at SOAS in London is putting up a whole seminar series on the subject. In case anyone is reading us in England, here is the programme (courtesy of Alicia Altorfer-Ong):

    • Dear website managers. You have erroneously included an event I organized which is on rule of law promotion in Africa as being part of events on China and Africa. It is not. Please remove it from your list or list it properly.

      Thank you,
      Chandra Sriram

  2. Can you please let us know which event you are referring to?
