While political at the time of African independence, the channels of diffusion and interaction between the African countries and China have predominantly been apprehended over the past few years in economic and geostrategic terms. The notion of “soft power”, sometimes translated as “cultural diplomacy” in French, sums up these different aspects and encapsulates highly diverse facets, to the point of confusion. Added to the fact that its wide usage singularly weakens this concept, it also tends to mask the diversity of situations and players, the superpositions between spaces and actions, the imaginations engaged, and configurations according to country. Based on field research carried out in various African countries, this panel will seek, in a diachronic and synchronic perspective, to render and detail this plurality.
