Brautigam, Deborah - The Dragon's Gift: The Real Story of China in Africa

Prof. Deborah Brautigam has written a text that should be on the shelf of anyone interested in Sino-African relations, plain and simple. Professor and Director of the International Development Program at Johns Hopkins University/School of Advanced International Studies, Brautigam has more than three decades of experience studying development, specifically African development, and she is one of the world's foremost experts on Sino-African relations, having been interested in Chinese aid projects to Africa since the 1980s. Looking primarily to debunk some of the more excessive stories being written about China's presence in Africa, she succeeds in that mission. However, she also either ignores or does not deal with evidence that contradicts her thesis, and she does both in a way that made me wary of her overall research. However, even with that said, her research and arguments are compelling enough to make up for those problems...

French, Howard - The Next Empire

All across Africa, new tracks are being laid, highways built,ports deepened, commercial contracts signed—all on an unprecedented scale, and led by China, whose appetite for commodities seems insatiable. Do China’s grand designs promise the transformation,at last, of a star-crossed continent? Or merely its exploitation? The author travels deep into the heart of Africa, searching for answers.

The CCS Weekly Briefing tracks China and China-Africa related news with special focus on Chinese trade and investment activity on the African continent. It is sent to subscribers (free of charge) every Friday. It usually contains five news items, of which three should be China-Africa related and two concern China’s role in the world.

African East-Asian Affairs | The China Monitor is a leading publication on China-Africa relations, available on a monthly basis. It contains research articles on China or China-Africa related topics. The AEAA | China Monitor is meant to serve as an academic exchange platform for scholars from African states, China, and other countries. The publication also includes an overview over important monthly activities by the CCS and key commentaries by CCS personnel over the month before.

The Centre produces a loose series of Discussion Papers which provide insights into ongoing research, including that of partners or visiting scholars. CCS discussion papers should contribute to the academic debate on China’s global rise and the consequences thereof for African development. Discussion papers should be seen as work in progress, exposed to (and ideally stimulating) policy-relevant discussion based on academic standards.

The Center publishes regular CCS Commentary pieces on the website regarding topical events China- Africa events. These commentaries can be freely used by the media or other members of the interested public if duly referenced to the author(s) and the CCS.
