Africa-Asia relations

China's second continent book coverThe ASC's 2015 Stephen Ellis Annual Lecture will take place on 10 December. This year’s lecture is given by journalist, author, and photographer Howard W. French. He will talk about the processes that began drawing large numbers of new Chinese migrants to Africa in the early to mid-1990s, and address the question of the global geopolitical and economic setting that pushed events in this direction. Howard French is the author of China’s Second Continent: How a Million Migrants are Building a New Empire in Africa, which was published by Knopf in May 2014.

The relationship between Africa and China and other Asian powers, features heavily in the ASC Library collection. It is also a subject well represented in ASC research, including in the ASC research collaborative group ‘Africa in the world’. This project aims to explore Africa’s changing global linkages in an increasingly multi-polar world, in which actors such as China, India, Turkey and the Gulf States are major players.

In this context, the ASC Library, in connection with ‘Africa in the world’, has compiled a web dossier on Africa-Asia Relations. The web dossier starts with an introduction to the subject by Mayke Kaag. It contains titles from the Library catalogue published in the past five years. Titles are divided thematically, then by country or region. Each title links to the corresponding record in the Library’s online catalogue, which provides abstracts and full text links (if available). The dossier concludes with links to a number of relevant websites.

The increased engagement of Asian powers with Africa over the last two decades has led to a plethora of studies analysing the evolving relationships from a variety of angles. It is clear that China and Chinese economic and political strategies in Africa have caught the greatest attention, India coming second at a substantial distance with increasing competition from emerging powers like South Korea, Turkey, Malaysia and others.

The early wave of publications tended to focus on the Asian actor engaging with Africa (or a specific African country) and to take the state level as the unit of analysis. Apparently  surprised by the ‘new’ Asian presence in Africa, they  lack historical consciousness and, in the West, were often characterised by a sense of alarmism. These early studies have increasingly given way to more balanced and diversified approaches that, for instance, account for the diversity of Chinese actors beyond the central State engaging with Africa, and that also offer more space to the study of African agency in the building of Africa-Asia relations. In particular, ethnographic research on day-to-day interactions between African and Asian actors in specific settings (market places, schools, but also more intimate settings like the family) adds an important layer to more meso and macro studies on economic and political ties. 

Historical studies are important for showing that Africa-Asia relations are not a new phenomenon. Indeed, current relationships often build and expand on older economic, political and cultural ties and social networks, for instance precolonial connections across the Indian Ocean and between North Africa and South East Asia/Middle East, Lebanese migrant communities in West Africa established during the colonial era, and relations forged during the Cold War between China and countries like Tanzania and the DRG.

Current migration flows from Asians to Africa and from Africans to Asia for such diverse reasons as education, work, and family, and how these co-shape Africa-Asia relationships will be an important field of study in the years to come.

Finally, the titles in this web dossier illustrate the increasing interaction and collaboration between scholars of African and Asian Studies. This, alongside initiatives to bring together researchers across continents working on Africa, Asia and their connections, will enhance the study of Africa-Asia relationships in the near future.
