WHAT’S HAPPENING AT THE RSAA?

The RSAA hosts free lectures for members every other week during term time. Lectures typically take place on a Wednesday in a Central London location, and if the lecture is at 1.15pm it is preceded by an optional buffet lunch. Wine is served before evening lectures.

In addition to the lecture programme, there are also a number of social events where members and their guests can meet others with similar interests.

Although a printed calendar is sent out to members, dates and venues are subject to change and additional events may be added to the calendar at short notice. It is therefore advisable to check this online calendar for the latest details.

The Dragon and the 55 Lions: China and Africa Today

20 February 2019

The Dragon and the 55 Lions: China and Africa Today

A lecture by Professor Stephen Chan OBE 

Where: Medical Society of London, Lettsom House, 11 Chandos Street, London W1G 9EB

Lecture starts at 1.15pm. There is a sandwich lunch available from 12.30pm which must be booked by 2.30pm on Monday 18 February

We naturally view China and Africa through our own history which makes little connection between them. Professor Chan takes a look at how China and Africa view the world and each other, producing a rather different set of perspectives. Professor Chan is a distinguished academic who has made a major contribution to the academic understanding of international politics, including through his involvement in high-level diplomacy and actions and advice on the ground. In 2006-7 he was a member of the Africa-China-US Trilateral Dialogue , an effort to establish a common set of principles to help govern the emerging trade wars involving the three continents.
