A Preliminary Mapping of China-Africa Knowledge Networks

Carayannis, Tatiana, Olin, Nathaniel


Given the growing importance of Chinese engagement in Africa, over the past year, the Conflict Prevention and Peace Forum (CPPF) of the SSRC has expanded its research engagement and policy outreach on China-Africa. The origins of this preliminary mapping report lie in an effort to identify Chinese researchers working on Africa—particularly on countries of UN engagement in the region—and on multilateral affairs, in order to expand CPPF’s networks of United Nations and peace and security specialists to include the Chinese research community.
