China, the South Pacific, and Contemporary Geopolitics
Mercredi 25 janvier 2017
avec Anne-Marie Brady
Within a relatively short period China has become a leading player in the South Pacific and multiple Chinese political and economic actors are engaging with the region. Taiwan has been a key factor for China’s interest in the region, but it is not the only one. This talk discusses the range of China’s interests in the South Pacific and how they connect to China’s broader geopolitical interests, and raises the question on how these may impact on France’s own interests in the South Pacific, Indian, and Southern Ocean.
