The Centre for Chinese Studies (CCS) is devoted to the study of China in Sub-Saharan Africa. Chinese Africa policies require methodologically sound empirical research, a clear understanding of inner-Chinese dynamics, and benefit from a comparative perspective. The CCS is working on the political, economic and environmental aspects of Sino-African relations. We seek to strengthen our research team with a postdoctoral research fellow on Chinese Foreign and Security Policy in Africa
