UCL - Institute of the Americas (UCL-IA) gladly hosts and supports this conference, organised in conjunction with UCL History Department.

This one-day conference convenes specialists working on important aspects of China’s involvement with Latin America. The programme will begin with a history of the Chinese diaspora focusing on the different patterns of migration taken by Chinese workers on their journey to the Americas. Against this background speakers will then examine Sino-Latin American relations in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. This theme will be analysed through the two sides’ respective political economies and through the impact of China’s investments on emerging markets. Health diplomacy offers a final perspective through which to trace China in Latin America.
