The West and China's Security Role in Africa

World Politics Review published on 20 June 2016 a commentary titled "Should the West be Worried about China's Growing Security Role in Africa?" by Richard Gowan, associate fellow at the European Council on Foreign Relations.

The author concludes that while China may be a rising player in UN operations in Africa, its overall military presence still lags far behind that of Western powers. In addition, all the talk of outside actors obscures the fact that African powers are quite capable of setting the security agenda on their own continent.
