China and UN Peacekeeping in Africa

Foreign Policy Analysis published on 20 December 2016 an analysis titled "A Bigger Bang for a Bigger Buck: What China's Changing Attitude Toward UN Peacekeeping Says About Its Evolving Approach to International Institutions" by Meicen Sun, Massachusetts Institute of Technology.

Most Chinese troops assigned to UN peacekeeping operations are located in Africa. This paper shows that China's attitudinal change toward UN peacekeeping is best captured by a shift from a present-cost-driven, "purchase" model of participation in international institutions to a future-benefit-driven, "investment" model of participation.
