Japan versus China: an increasing rivalry, even in Africa

17 avril 2017

Conference

The French Chamber and Sciences Po Alumni Association in Japan are glad to propose a conference on the subject "Japan versus China: an increasing rivalry, even in Africa", held at the French Chamber on Monday, April 17 at 19:00.

Even though Japan and China have very old relationships with the African continent and its countries, their ambitions have always been different.
Japan has been present in Africa as a member of the western community, capitalizing on its help to African countries in order to be elected at the U.N. Security Council. From an economic perspective, Japan has used the relatively traditional tools of international donors and has maintained mostly commercial relationships, with few investments and a limited human presence.

China has been more engaged in the various fights for national freedom, sometimes facing failure (as in Angola). Its cooperation has been limited but visible at the grass-roots or community levels. However, since the late 1980s, China started gaining popularity on the commercial and political levels. Finally, rivalry between Tokyo and Pekin became global with the failure in 2005 of another attempt at reforming the U.N. Security Council.

In this conference, the relationship between China and Japan will be analyzed as well as the effects of their rivalry today. This will also allow us to understand Africa’s level of awareness regarding its consequences, and its plans for drawing new benefits from its Western and Asian partners’ relationships.
