Abstract

Even though analyses of India’s contemporary engagement with Africa are only now starting to generate pace, a misleading narrative of this relationship has already taken hold. India’s involvement with Africa is assumed to be driven by its hegemonic competition with the People’s Republic of China within the broader Indian Ocean world. In particular, analysts have emphasized China and India’s jockeying for economic markets, natural resources and security.
