I will be speaking at the University of Nairobi Thursday afternoon May 24, 2012, on "China and Africa in the 21st Century," from 3:30 to 5:00 pm. The lecture will be co-hosted by the Institute of Diplomacy and International Relations, the Africa Research and Resources Forum, and the World Bank's Global Center on Conflict, Security, and Development. The lecture will be followed by a debate on China's role in Africa.
Location: University of Nairobi, Education Building, ED 213, 2nd Floor.
Update, Thursday, May 24: great turnout at the lecture, but not enough time for all those waving hands to be called on by the moderator, Professor Michael Chege. Let's see how many students find this blog and ask their questions here, as I invited them to do!
