China’s growing influence in Africa has been a topic that I have followed for a long time starting in 2006 when I recognized the increase in economic investment by China is various African countries. Since then I have been following China’s development investments and arms deals as well as the USA’s increase in “anti-terrorism” training with African militaries, notably in the Sahel region, via AFRICOM. This research paper was completed as part of a senior level Capstone course on the historical relationship between China and the USA, specific to international relations and policy.
