China-Africa Cooperative Partnership for Peace and Security



This chapter tackles the basis and details of the Initiative on China-Africa Cooperative Partnership for Peace and Security (ICACPPS), launched in July 2012 and the foundation for China’s collaboration in security with African governments and regional institutions. It reflects upon the motivations behind this joint initiative with African partners and assessing the key challenges to confront China and Africa in the security realm. The study argues that China should broaden the scope of cooperation to cover most non-traditional security issues, to involve nonstate actors, and to rely more on multilateral cooperation platforms for facilitating the construction of ICACPPS.
