Abstract
The ambition of this work is to reconstruct the history of the Sino-Ethiopian relations after the 1990s, taking into account the particular relevance of the Chinese model for post-1991 Ethiopia. To this end, after an introduction dedicated to the state of the art of the literature about the Beijing consensus and China-Africa relations, it will follow the evolution of the relations between the two countries. The second chapter will begin with a brief reconstruction of the previous relations between the two countries, then it will explore the search for an ideological model by the TPLF after its first decade in power and how the evolution of Ethiopian domestic politics drove the Ethiopian government towards China. Particular attention will be paid to the logic behind the growing engagement between the two countries and the incentives for both parties to pursue this relationship. In the last chapter, the diverse facets of cooperation between the two countries will be examined, focusing on the practical repercussions of Sino-Ethiopian cooperation. Finally, it will assess China’s attitude and role in the relation to Ethiopia’s internal upheaval of the last two years. This dissertation does not intend to be exhaustive given the proportion and ramifications of his subject. Nevertheless, it is the hope of the author that this work may offer a comprehensive perspective on a significant issue of contemporary relations between China and the African continent.
