Constructing China’s Identity in Africa: A Case Study of China-Zambia Relations

Full Biography

Emmanuel Matambo is an aspiring Zambian academic of African politics and international relations. He holds a doctorate degree in political science. One of his compelling passions is to contribute to efforts that are intended to bolster Africa’s social, economic and political fortunes as the continent situates itself in an increasingly globalized world. His main area of interest is African agency, especially the continent’s relationship with outside states and institutions, mainly China. He also focuses on Africa’s long overdue role as principal architect of peace and security on the continent.
