Ethiopia and Angola: Democracy, China, US and EU

Democratization published in March 2015 an article titled "Not As Bad As It Seems: EU and US Democracy Promotion Faces China in Africa" by Christine Hackenesch, German Development Institute.

Using Ethiopia and Angola as case studies, the author argues that the important presence of China in both countries has not made it more difficult for the U.S. and European Union to implement their strategies for encouraging democratization.  Rather, domestic factors in Ethiopia and Angola, notably the level of challenge to regime survival both governments face, influence both governments' willingness to engage the European Union and U.S.
