The increase in China's economic and political involvement in
Africa is arguably the most momentous development on the continent
since the end of the Cold War. This book seeks to detail the
origins, structure, workings and activities of The Forum on
China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC) and its development over the last
nine years. Mindful of the growing realisation that Africa is to
play an increasingly important role in global energy politics, Ian
Taylor provides a clear and detailed overview of an organisation
that has been generally overlooked, despite the exponential rise in
the importance of the Chinese presence in Africa. Topics addressed
include: the key structures, functions and operations of the FOCAC
the importance and development of the triennial summits, including
the focus on cultural exchanges and economic cooperation the key
criticisms and challenges currently faced by the FOCAC discussion
of `emerging issues' - is it possible to have a "win-win" situation
between Africa and China, as the FOCAC suggests? The Forum on
China-Africa Cooperation provides a concise introduction to an
organisation that will be instrumental in the future of Africa's
relationship with the developed world, and will be of interest to
students of African and Chinese politics, International Relations
and International Organizations.
