For years, China has been investing in infrastructure projects in Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa. Two ifa studies examine the goals, strategies and instruments of China's foreign cultural policy and its multilateral engagement on the two continents. How is China engaged in cultural policy in Sub-Saharan Africa and in Latin America? How has this engagement changed? What role do multilateral forums and organisations play? How is the engagement perceived by cultural actors and politics?
Afterwards, there will be an opportunity for exchange and networking.
The discussion will be held in English and will also be digitally accessible.
In the research programme "Culture and Foreign Policy" and the programme line "Research" of the Martin Roth Initiative, experts investigate current issues of foreign cultural and educational policy. The research programmes set topics and develop recommendations to strengthen and further develop international cultural relations. The research assignments are accompanied by conferences and workshops. The research results are published in the ifa edition Culture and Foreign Policy, as ifa Input or as Policy Brief.
