I call to your attention The China-Africa Knowledge Project at the Social Science Research Council (SSRC). The project aims to deepen understanding of China's engagement with Africa and locate scholarship on China and Africa within broader scholarly and policy discourses. It does this by institutional collaboration and developing web-based resources and activities. It is funded by the Henry Luce Foundation and the SSRC.
The project has an international and interdisciplinary Working Group on China-Africa tasked with facilitating new research collaboration. The SSRC is working to strengthen and expand the Chinese in Africa/Africans in China Research Network. The China, Africa, and the UN stream of work explores the evolution of China's engagement with multilateral cooperation and the United Nations.
