Abstract:This special issue of the 'Journal of Contemporary African Studies' focuses on Sino-African relations. Following the introductory paper by Dominik Kopinski, Andrzej Polus and Ian Taylor on the positive as well as the negative implications of China's engagement in Africa, Wu Zhengyu and Ian Taylor examine Chinese involvement in peacekeeping in Africa. Next, Péter Marton and Tamás Matura discuss conceptions of conflict over Africa's natural resources. This is followed by two contributions related to energy issues involving Chinese actors in Africa (by Lucy Corkin on Angola and by Dominik Kopinski and Andrzej Polus on Zambia). The focus then shifts to looking at how external players fit into the wider Sino-African relationship. First, Karolina Wysoczanska examines Sino-Indian cooperation in Africa. Maurizio Carbone then follows with his study of how the EU and China variously compete in Africa. Finally, Lukasz Fijalkowski critiques the notion of China's 'soft power' in Africa.
