Chapter Summary

This chapter argues that China is increasingly adopting a number of Western values and norms which guide the behaviour of some important non-African powers-in relation to interventions in the field of security and development assistance. It looks at the interactions of China, the European Union (EU), and the United States (US) with the African Union within these two policy areas. The chapter introduces the international debate on China's entry into Africa. It also introduces the theoretical reflections which have inspired the empirical analysis, a framework which emphasises the significance of aims, values and norms when discussing cooperation between the three non-African partners (China, the US, and the EU) and the African Union. The chapter concludes that it is possible to identify the contours of an African governance regime covering both security interventions and development assistance.

Keywords: Africa; China; European Union (EU); United States (US)
