This talk examines China’s interests and behavior as a rising power towards the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa in the functional areas of political relations, economic relations, foreign aid, military relations, agricultural relations, and cultural relations. Specific case studies discussed include the Forum on China-Africa Cooperation (FOCAC), the China-Arab States Cooperation Forum (CASCF), the China-Middle East Issues Special Envoy, and the China-Africa Issues Special Envoy. Dr. Dawn Murphy is a Princeton-Harvard China and the World Postdoctoral Fellow who specializes in Chinese foreign policy and international relations. Her current research analyzes China’s interests and behavior as a rising global power towards the existing international order. Specifically, she examines China’s relations with the Middle East and Sub-Saharan Africa. As a CWP fellow, she will work on a book manuscript based on her dissertation. This project is based on extensive field work conducted as a Visiting Scholar with the Chinese Academy of Social Sciences in Beijing, China; a Visiting Research Fellow with the American University in Cairo, Egypt; and a Visiting Researcher at Stellenbosch University’s Centre for Chinese Studies in South Africa. Dawn received her B.S. in Industrial and Labor Relations from Cornell University and Master of International Affairs from Columbia University’s School of International and Public Affairs. She received her Ph.D. from George Washington University. This talk is sponsored by the Princeton-Harvard China and the World Program of the Woodrow Wilson School whose mission is to encourage research on China’s foreign relations and China within the international relations context.
