Chinese-built Railway Project in Kenya

The China-Africa Research Initiative at Johns Hopkins University published in October 2016 a policy brief titled "Local Politics Meets Chinese Engineers: A Study of the Chinese-built Standard Gauge Railway Project in Kenya" by Uwe Wissenbach and Yuan Wang.

The authors conclude that the standard gauge railway project in Kenya has sparked controversy around its economic viability, corruption, opaque contracting practices, financing arrangements, and community and labor issues. The project has also created modest development opportunities for local content, jobs, and skills.
