A Changing World Order: China's Rise in Africa

The American Institute for Contemporary German Studies (AICGS) at Johns Hopkins University published on 29 December 2016 an essay titled "A Changing World Order: China's Rise in Africa" by Anna Stahl, most recently a research fellow at AICGS.

The author comments that while Europe and the United States have been Africa's traditional partners, China is starting to challenge their influence on the continent. The essay compares how Europe and the U.S. have responded to China's growing influence in Africa. It argues that in the current context of global uncertainty, transatlantic policy coordination on China is needed to contribute to a more stable and predictable international environment and to avoid that the rise of new powers and the ongoing power transition will lead to confrontation.
