Today we release The WISER Podcast on China Africa Futures : thinking beyond conspiracy.

The episode focuses on some of the most prominent themes in global and local preoccupations with the models of government that China holds out for African states and peoples.  We focus, in particular, on the threats and limits of state surveillance for African countries as they show themselves around the COVID19 pandemic, and the growing international concerns about the eYuan, the new digital currency championed by the People's Bank of China. 

The podcast is a conversation between Keith Breckenridge (Wits), Iginio Gagliardone (Wits), Mingwei Huang (Dartmouth) and Bulelani Jili (Harvard).
