AbstractOver the past decade, China’s influence on the African continent has grown significantly. While this growth has been primarily within the economic sphere, such expansion has increasingly become bound up with issues of political involvement. There has been growing international pressure for China to play a greater role in peacekeeping efforts on the continent, a call which increasingly challenges its “non-interference” policy. As China increases its clout on the world stage, it is increasingly obliged to demonstrate traits of global leadership, not least of which is playing an instrumental role in securing regional and global security.
