Sample text

58 Given this context, it is unsurprising that many African states are labelled in an arguably derogatory fashion such as ‘lacking development’. Again, these sentiments are intensely hierarchical, and reflect paternalistic thinking that China and the ‘international community’ can teach the underdeveloped world with by means of ‘selfless’ actions towards ‘childlike’ polities that are defined along crude racial lines. Such thinking also dovetails with Chinese debates on what a ‘responsible great power’ is.

63 The Chinese have hosted meetings such as the 2004 Shanghai ‘Conference for Scaling up Poverty Reduction and Global Learning Process’, and the assumption that China can offer a ‘model’ of development for the developing world is never far below the surface in the writings of many Chinese commentators. 64 Even if explicit ‘teaching’ is not undertaken by the PRC, paternalism remains visible in the literature concerning the ‘Chinese model’ of economic growth. 65 This can be interpreted as an attempt to demonstrate that, [u]nlike Western colon(ial)ists, [the Chinese] do not go about educating or ‘reforming’ natives, but show them an example of success.
