MENDES, Carmen Amado. China and South-South cooperation. Relações Internacionais [online]. 2010, n.26, pp.39-46. ISSN 1645-9199.

The new paradigm in which the People’s Republic of China is perceived (from weak and politically fragile to strong) and its growing soft power, in part due to the high rates of economic development, led to the general acceptance of its influence in the South. Perceived as a more convenient partner than the Western countries, China legitimates its presence in Africa and Latin America presenting its own development model, in which economic progress is not linked with political democratization. Using the slogan of South-South cooperation and replacing the so-called Western norms by others with “Chinese characteristics”, as the Five Principles of Peaceful Coexistence, Beijing challenges European and US interests in those regions.

Palavras-chave : People’s Republic of China; Africa; Latin America; South-South Cooperation.
