(Un)writing “Chinese Space” in Urban Africa. Of City-Making, Lived Experiences, and Entangled Processes

As different forms of Global China have emerged and expanded throughout the African continent, this phenomenon has also materialised spatially. The authors suggest that migrants must be approached as social actors who are integral to city-making as they engage in the daily life of cities through different and varied forms. The underlying aim of this special issue is to disrupt the manner in which reciprocal forms of influence between Chinese dynamics and urban environments in Africa have been studied.
