"Over the past 10-15 years China has become a major economic and political power in Africa. It is the continents largest trade partner and a major importer of its oil and raw materials. What does this imply for development in Africa? Is China just another foreign imperialist joining the scramble for access to Africa’s natural resources – or does China present a new approach and new opportunities for Africa?".

SAIH is hosting a seminar next Wednesday 06. April, in Speilsalen at Kvarteret! Elling N. Tjønneland is a senior researcher at Chr. Michelsen Institute (CMI), and will join us to talk about Chinas involvment in the African continent, and what consequences or opportunities this may have for their development. We hope to see you there!
