See how China’s present “Belt and Road” initiative fits into historical international efforts to encourage the economic development of Africa.
The modern economic history of Africa provides lessons on colonialism, international intervention, corruption, and unfulfilled promise.
We’ll also briefly look at the impact of COVID on African debt levels, as a result of these construction projects. While economics focused, the session will have definite connections to world history and global geography.
