Abstract

La politique africaine de la Chine n’est pas sans incidence sur les relations de l’UE tant avec la Chine qu’avec l’Afrique. Par conséquenti UE a proposé une coopération trilatérale afin de dégager les synergies entre les contributions potentielles respectives de l’UE et de la Chine au développement des pays africains. Cet article adopte une perspective de relations internationales afin de caractériser ce rapport triangulaire au-delà de ce que proposent des approches empiriques ou économiques bien connues. Il se penche en particulier sur la Chine en tant qu’acteur en Afrique. L'anteur se demande si la Chine est en Afrique parce qu’elle est forte ou faible, etil examine l’impact de l’approche trilatérale de l’UE sur l’Afrique en tant qu’acteur sur la scène internationale.European Journal of Development Research (2009) 21, 662–674. doi:10.1057/ejdr.2009.25
