While China’s relations with Latin America once focused on revolutionary movements and social justice, today they revolve around markets and materials. This change has brought both increased tensions and new relationships.

Carol Wise, Associate Professor of International Relations, University of Southern California
Julia Strauss, Senior Lecturer in Chinese Politics, School of Oriental and African Studies, University of London
Barry Eichengreen, Professor of Economics and Political Science, UC Berkeley
