IGC Growth Week 2010 - Managing Natural Resource Rents: China and Africa

Download: Audio, Video

Speaker(s): Professor Paul Collier, Dr Christopher Alden, Dr Gobind Nankani, Alan Winters

Recorded on 20 September 2010 in Sheikh Zayed Theatre, New Academic Building.

Is China's strategy - of negotiating deals in which resources are exchanged for infrastructure - mutually beneficial, or a new variant of the plunder of Africa? China 'asks no questions' of African governments: is that respectful of African sovereignty or an abrogation of responsibility?
