China’s increased presence across the Global South has given rise to broad-ranging public interest and concern. Some analysts now ask whether China’s activity as an "emerging donor" threatens the international donor community, or whether it can be socialized into the community? Drawing on field research conducted for the International Development Research Centre in summer 2007, Gregory Chin will discuss the motivations behind China’s rising foreign assistance activities, and China’s leadership capacity in this area of global affairs. He will examine China’s new international influence in the area of foreign aid, and factors that limit its influence.
