Chinese Investment in Africa: Avenues for Academic Scholarship (Revision 1 )

Award Winning
Working Paper
The significance of Chinese investment in Africa has long been a subject of international policy debate. However, business scholarship has given this important phenomenon little attention. In this paper, we seek to draw attention to the importance of this area for business research. The authors outline the significance of this phenomenon for business scholars in terms of possible theoretical and methodological research avenues and provide a preliminary report on a dataset we have assembled to offer insights into the geographic and economic breadth of Chinese investment in Africa.
