Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


African countries have been increasingly interacting with China during the last two decades and have been influenced in economic, social and political terms. This influence has positively as well as negatively impacted the African societies and in this project a closer look at the negative issues connected to this takes place. As the whole African continent is too diverse to investigate all these issues in each country within the limits of this project, the two countries of Zambia and South Africa were chosen as the focus area. In order to analyse this, four hypotheses were posed that cover the different aspects of the project. By attempting to prove them it has been shown that for example the Zambian textile industry has suffered due to a Chinese presence and that xenophobia against Chinese has risen in South Africa. All of the findings have therefore led to the conclusion that the Zambian and South African societies are experiencing several different issues connected to a Chinese presence.
