Share China in Latin America Conference

Event Details

This one-day conference convenes specialists working on important aspects of China’s involvement with Latin America. The programme will begin with a history of the Chinese diaspora focussing on the different patterns of migration taken by Chinese workers on their journey to the Americas. Against this background speakers will then examine Sino-Latin American diplomacy in the twentieth century. This theme will be analysed through the two sides’ respective political economies and through the impact of China’s investments on emerging markets. Health Diplomacy offers a final perspective through which to trace China in Latin America.

The conference brings together the UCL Centre for Transnational History and UCL Centre for China Health and Humanity and is kindly supported by UCL Institute of the Americas and UCL Grand Challenges Intercultural Interactions. 

This event is free to students and academics (you will need to state your institution when booking). If you are not a current student or currently employed by a University/HEI please use the public booking page here -
