Africa Turns to China for Surveillance Systems

 The Georgetown Journal of International Affairs posted on 20 January 2023 an article titled "A Technological Fix: The Adoption of Chinese Public Security Systems" by Bulelani Jili.

The article looks at the proliferation in Africa of Chinese surveillance tools and questions their use.  Some 22 African countries have contracted with Chinese firms to establish public security surveillance systems.
