About the Event

FPRI's Africa Program Templeton Fellows Carla D. Jones, Mengge Li, and Hermann A. Ndofor will discuss their recently released report on China's economic engagement with Africa, which is not static due to changing Chinese government policies and the changing needs of African countries. They will explore the effect of Chinese economic engagement on international political alignment of African countries between 2001-2019, suggesting three seasons of Chinese economic engagement in Africa.
