China-Africa Think Tanks Forum

The China-Africa Think Tank Forum (CATTF) has published the results of its 2nd meeting that took place in Bishoftu, Ethiopia, on 12-13 October 2012.

Although the 191 page document contains a fair amount of fluff, beginning on page 49 it contains the summaries of 50 presentations by African, Chinese and European scholars.  The papers cover an enormous variety of topics.  They are heavy on security issues.  The Horn of Africa (especially Sudan and Ethiopia), North Africa, Zimbabwe and Zambia are well represented in the papers.
