The China Africa Project (CAP) is a fully-independent multimedia organization dedicated to exploring every aspect of China’s engagement with Africa. The CAP is a purely informational endeavor with no partisan agenda whatsoever and does not advocate on behalf of any country, company or culture.
The CAP was co-founded in 2010 by journalist Eric Olander and media scholar Dr. Cobus van Staden. Until August 2019, the CAP was a passion project that Eric and Cobus worked on during nights and weekends. Now, Eric works full-time on CAP to produce the daily email newsletter, podcasts and to maintain the website. Cobus remains employed by the South African Institute of International Affairs as the lead China-Africa researcher and works on CAP in his spare time.
