Civil society and emerging powers in Africa

Fahamu established the Emerging Powers in Africa Initiative in 2008 in order to obtain a better understanding of the comparative impact and engagement of emerging powers in Africa on issues dealing with social justice and civil society. Much of its research has focused on China and India.

It just published a major series of articles (PDF) on the following topics:
  • Chinese and Brazilian engagement in Angola’s national effort to build houses.
  • Comparative African perspectives on the trade relations and practices of transnational telecommunications corporations of China and South Africa in Nigeria.
  • Comparative analysis of China and South Africa in the Democratic Republic of the Congo on investment practices in the extractive industries and its environmental and social impact.
  • Comparative analysis of the commitment of Chinese and South African companies to corporate social responsibility in Nigeria’s telecommunication sector.
