African Research on China and Chinese Research on Africa

The Social Science Research Council (SSRC) published earlier this year a useful guide to organizations in Africa doing research on China and those in China doing research on Africa. SSRC is an independent, nonprofit, international organization based in New York. The authors of the report, Tatiana Carayannis and Nathaniel Olin, are with the Conflict Prevention and Peace Forum, a program of the SSRC.

The analysis describes the following African institutions engaged in China studies: African Economic Research Consortium, Council for the Development of Social Science Research in Africa, Kofi Annan International Peacekeeping Training Centre, Centre for Chinese Studies at Stellenbosch University, the South African Institute of International Affairs at the University of Witwatersrand.

It discusses the following Chinese institutions engaged in Africa studies: Development Research Center of the State Council, China Institute for Contemporary International Relations, China Institute of International Studies, Chinese Academy of Social Sciences, Forum on China-Africa Cooperation, Hong Kong Institute for the Humanities and Social Sciences, International Poverty Reduction Center in China, School of International Relations and Political Science at Tongji University and the Institute of African Studies at Zhejiang Normal University.

The study also includes a very short list of Western institutions engaged in China-Africa research programs and Confucius Institutes in Africa.
