Abstract:

The rising involvement of the Peoples Republic of China PRC in African peacekeeping operations challenges the current role of a sponsor that the United States US takes. This might be contributing to a strategic advantage in an area that Americans, in general, do not value. The Trump Administrations great-power rivalry shifted US military efforts toward competing heavily with the PRC in the Pacific Area of Responsibility AOR. However, in order to compete globally with the PRC, the US must consider the potential of PRC dominance in African security matters. Peacekeeping in Africa is an internationally visible mission that the PRC has seized and gained a positive international reputation.
