John Schellhase, who works at the Development Research Institute at New York University, commented extensively in the 26 June 2012 issue of The Diplomat on the South African Institute of International Affairs (SAIIA) paper on Chad. To access the SAIIA paper, see the entry for 21 June below.
Schellhase concludes that "Chad remains a microcosm of the ambiguities of Chinese engagement in Africa. How Beijing handles challenges there will offer an insight into how it will approach potential crises throughout the region."
