Africa and international relations in the 21st century

edited by Scarlett Cornelissen, Fantu Cheru and Timothy M. Shaw

At the start of the second decade of the 21st Century, Africa is viewed in a much more positive light by analysts, investors, observers and policymakers. China's recent closer involvement with the continent has set the tone for new forms of engagement between Africa and the rest of the world. The authors discuss the implications for Africa's future trajectories and how to understand the continent's position in the international system. Furthermore, they demonstrate how the study of shifts in Africa's international relations can help explain broader dynamics and the changing foundations of world order.
