This week Dr. Stacey Links joins Eric & Cobus from Amsterdam to discuss her research in the role that human rights plays within the broader China-Africa relationship. Stacey, a South African native, recently completed her Ph.D. on the subject at the University of Utrecht in the Netherlands.

She explains why the human rights dimension of the China-Africa discourse is "partial, misleading and incomplete."

Join the discussion. Are you concerned about the lack of attention that Chinese and African leaders place on human rights or do you think it's good the way it is where trade and investment are the main priorities? Let us know what you think.
