Following that, an attempt is made to describe the conditions under which civil society organisations (CSO) function in China and Africa and their different characteristics. The chapter also systematically traces the recent attempts towards civil society-academia engagement on China- Africa relations at various levels in Africa and China and asks what lessons can be learnt so far. Finally, it explores what prospects there are for effective civil society engagement in China Africa relations.
