The Imitation Game: Will China’s Investments Reshape Africa’s Internet? – @ThinkDemocracy
Power 3.0 Blog, National Endowment for Democracy (NED)

"...[W]hile Beijing frames its involvement in African ICT sectors as a diplomatic gesture, there has been insufficient debate about the impact it could have on free expression and political pluralism on the Internet in Africa. For instance, the actions of Huawei and ZTE have raised concerns in a number of democracies—including Australia and India—that these companies may facilitate surveillance and other interference activities that benefit the Chinese government. But just as significantly for the integrity of democracies, this infrastructure may reflect the Chinese government’s vision of “Internet sovereignty,” which promotes state control of online activity within a country’s borders as a matter of political security, without regard for free expression. This raises concerns for fragile democracies in the region"
