February 23, 2011
Time:5:30-7 p.m.
Description:"China Inc.'s Africa Involvement" is a talk by Walter Kansteiner, founding principal of the Scowcroft Group and former U.S. assistant secretary of African affairs. Refreshments will be provided. China's presence, trade and investment in Africa are at an all-time high, and its impact is not only economic but environmental as well; a stark example comes from China's clear-cutting of the rainforest in the Congo Basin. Kansteiner will focus his discussion on what this means for Africa, its environment and its strategic ecosystems, as well as what it means for the United States' diplomatic, trade and economic interests.

In his duties as assistant secretary for African affairs, Kansteiner was responsible for U.S. foreign policy in Africa. He was also the President George W. Bush's personal representative to the G8 Africa Process. He previously served as the director of African Affairs on the National Security Council staff and as the Africa specialist on the secretary of state's policy planning staff. He is a member of the Council on Foreign Relations, chairs the congressionally mandated Africa Policy Advisory Panel and serves on various boards in the U.S. and Africa.
