The Chinese-African encounter – a source of creativity, adaptation, but also of disorder – is transforming African societies. Whether talking about the Chinese present in Africa, or Africans travelling in China, we come up against difficulties of classification, or even status, given the multiplicity of trajectories and activities. One of the first difficulties stems from the propensity to talk about “Africans” and “Chinese”, as if dealing with homogeneous groups. Another concerns the tendency to talk about “migrants” when looking at mobilities whose duration, objectives, and criteria of investment significantly surpass habitual connotations surrounding migration/migrants in academic research, causing considerable confusion both in terms of these activities and mobilities. Finally, the ideology behind South-South discourses that denounce the influence of the North tends to introduce a militant perspective. Based on empirical studies, this panel will aim to clarify the different facets of this “inbetweenness”, which concerns both individuals and the societies in which they circulate.
