Self-Employed Africans and Chinese in Guangzhou, China

The UCLA International Institute published on 1 October 2015 a study titled "Entrepreneurship and Interracial Dynamics: A Case Study of Self-Employed Africans and Chinese in Guangzhou, China" by Min Zhou, Tao Xu, and Shabnam Shenasi.

The study examines how interacting social forces shape interracial relations and mobility pathways for migrant entrepreneurs in Guangzhou.  It suggests that interactions between African and Chinese entrepreneurs are economically interdependent and socio-culturally contentious processes, shaping a myriad of intersecting identities and creating room for cooperation that transcends race, class, and migrant status.
