The China Africa Research Initiative at the Johns Hopkins University School of Advanced International Studies (SAIS-CARI) announced a call for the 2019 round of applications to the SAIS-CARI Fellows program. SAIS-CARI Fellowships are awarded on a competitive basis or by invitation to researchers, policy-makers, or journalists who wish to carry out research and write about an under-explored policy issue related to China-Africa engagement related.
2019 Theme: Strategic Interests: China, Africa, and the Rest
In this round, we were looking for proposals that focus on China’s strategic interests and how they impact Africa, Africa’s traditional Western partners, or other key actors in Africa. We were particularly interested in research that examines:
The development-security nexus
China’s military and maritime engagement in Africa
The impact of China’s rising influence on efforts to combat piracy and terrorism; debt distress and economic and political instability; and humanitarian crises.
