One hour lecture on China's Role in Africa by Professor Jeffrey S. Morton, followed by a 20- minute question and answer segment.
As cash-strapped nations across Africa turned to China to build much-needed infrastructure, they stepped into the middle of a geopolitical rivalry. Great Decisions investigates Chinese–American competition in Africa.
Since 1918 the Foreign Policy Association has served as a catalyst for open, objective and non-partisan public discourse of world affairs and American foreign policy. Great Decisions is an annual series that examines the most pressing foreign policy challenges each year. During this global pandemic, we will be offering an online master class for those who are unable to participate in their usual discussion groups in-person.
