China's evolving foreign policy in Africa: a new direction for China's non-intervention strategy?
MetadataShow full item record
This thesis analyzes China’s foreign policy towards the African continent to identify and explain any potential shift away from China’s previous non-intervention strategy towards African nations. China’s economic relationship with the African continent has grown considerably during the last two decades and reshaped China’s political relationship with the continent. Findings offer three main drivers—economic interests, Western pressure, and African pressure—compelling China towards a more interventionist role in the domestic affairs of African nations. Utilizing case studies from Mali and Sudan, this thesis aims to investigate how each driver changed China’s non-intervention strategy and identify what a change in China’s non-intervention strategy might indicate for its policies globally.
