JANUARY 15: China’s role in Africa 

The COVID-19 crisis has put a massive strain on what was growing a positive economic and political relationship between China and the continent of Africa. As Chinese President Xi Jinping’s centerpiece “Belt and Road initiative” continues to expand Chinese power, the response to the spread of COVID-19, as well as the African government’s growing debt to China, has seen pushback. What are some of the growing economic and political issues between China and Africa?

Speaker: David Shinn, George Washington University



Great Decisions returns January 15—all virtual—and runs for eight consecutive weeks on Fridays at noon.

One of WorldOregon's favorite events of the year is the annual Great Decisions series —the oldest, largest grassroots, people-powered, foreign policy series in the country, which had its start here in Portland in 1953. The series features eight hard-hitting topics selected by the Foreign Policy Association and across the region people organize discussion groups and attend our 8-week conversation series.

As in previous years,  this year's series features some very critical issues that are "ripped from the headlines," as they say, topics that are front-and-center for how the U.S. is and will continue to be engaging on the world stage. 

Also note: due to programs being all virtual, we will not be selling Great Decisions books but they may be purchased from the Foreign Policy Association here.
