A New China-Africa Think Tank Aims to Fill a Big Void

While Africa is home to a number of world-class think tanks, very few have deep expertise in China and Asian affairs more broadly. This week, a group of young scholars launched the Afro-Sino Centre for International Relations in Ghana in an effort to help fill that void and provide China-Africa analysis from a distinctly African perspective.

AfSCIR Co-Founder and Executive Director Pamela Carslake joins Eric & Cobus from Accra to discuss her new organization and how it plans to go about getting its analysis into the hands of African stakeholders across the continent.
