EDUCATIONAL ENGAGEMENT: China, Africa and South Africa

27 January 2015
12:30 - 13:30

Speaker: Dr Ke Yu Democracy Governance and Service Delivery, Human Sciences Research Council

Date:  Tuesday, 27 January     Time: 12:30  – 13:30

Venue:    VCRs, Pretoria, Cape Town, Durban

Traditional literature on Sino-Africa engagement tends to apply a pan-African and a China-centric lens. This is particularly problematic in discussing the Sino-South Africa relationship because of the great difference between South Africa and many other African countries and the fact that China is only one foreign player in the continent.

This presentation draws upon the chapter Dr. Ke Yu wrote in Perspectives on South Africa-China Relations (published by AISA) that focuses on the educational engagement. In addition to  pan-African and China-centric lens, Dr Ke Yu also applies a South Africa specific and a Africa-centric lens to offer a more comprehensive and realistic examination of the Sino-South African engagement on education.

The seminar may be attended in Pretoria, Cape Town or Durban
