Contemporary Africa-China relations: Re-examining the collaboration-domination debate
As China emerges to be a new global power, its relation with Africa is overheated with domination or collaboration debate. The pessimistic argues that China offers puny aid aimed at exploiting nature resources and creating a neo-colonialism state in Africa, while the optimistic argues that Chinese aid is aimed at creating mutual win-win collaboration that tend to lift poverty in Africa. This study will attempt to offer explanation using historical and aid/investment analysis as a focal point of reference. In this regard this work seeks to position Africa-China relation debate within historical, contemporary context as well as examine the nature of aid.
