China in Africa: The Real Story

Vulnerable Chinese Employers? New Ghana Research

Deborah Brautigam

Fascinating new fieldwork research based on approximately 100 interviews with small-scale Chinese trading companies and their Ghanaian employees: "The Vulnerable Other -- Distorted Equity in Chinese-Ghanaian Employment Relations," by Karsten Giese and Alena Theil.

From the abstract: "Central to the frictions of mutual equity expectations is the feeling of existential vulnerability that -- although particular for each group -- is shared by both Chinese migrant employers taking high financial risks in an unfamiliar and potentially hostile environment and their local employees recruited almost exclusively from economically marginalized groups."

Available in a free version online from Ethnic and Racial Studies 2012: 1-20. Thanks to Karsten Giese for the link.
