Studenteropgave: Semesterprojekt


The media hype about China’s engagements across the African continent has caused a lot of contention. The Western media has been particularly negative towards China’s activities in Africa, using headline grabbing scare-mongering quotes from various politicians such as “Cameron warns Africa of the ‘Chinese invasion’ as they pour billions into the continent” (Groves, 2011) and “Hillary Clinton warns Africa of ‘New Colonialism’” (Lee, 2011). There are numerous queries raised, especially about the Chinese aid programme. The International Monetary Fund and World Bank are constantly trying to put numbers and hard facts to how much of what China is doing in Africa is aid, trade or investment but with very little success according to Brautigam and Pengtao Li (Brautigam, 2009) (Pengtao, 2010).
