Political Risk Factors Facing Chinese Investment in Africa

The Centre for Chinese Studies (CCS) at Stellenbosch University published in September 2013 a paper titled "Political Risk Factors: What Chinese Companies Need to Assess When Investing in Africa" by Gerda du Toit, a research intern at the CCS.

She argues that security is becoming a more important factor for Chinese firms as they expand investments in Africa.  Economic development, social development, political instability, corruption and political violence are host country factors that may shape the African political environment and Chinese firms' exposure to political risk.
