China, Africa, and the UN
Mapping the evolving relationships between China, Africa, and the United Nations
The Conflict Prevention and Peace Forum (CPPF) is expanding its programming and developing new initiatives on the evolving relationships between China, the African continent, and the United Nations system.
Preliminary work in mapping knowledge networks on the China-Africa relationship has outlined several themes for further research. These include economic engagement and foreign aid, political and security engagement (particularly within the context of multilateral institutions), and diasporas, migration, and the identity issues surrounding African communities in China as well as Chinese communities in Africa. CPPF is also exploring the evolution of China's engagement with the international system and the United Nations, with particular focus on the debate within China surrounding multilateralism and global norms.
