Oxford University China Africa Network (OUCAN) The Oxford University China-Africa Network (OUCAN) brings together scholars, graduate students and experts from the field to push forward the research pertaining political, cultural and socio-economic trends, both from a macro and a micro perspective. Founded in 2008, OUCAN aims to go beyond the news headlines and help provide an empirical basis for a better understanding of the multiplicity and complexity of the Sino-African relationship. The theme of the conference this year is 'Between physical and ideological mobility: The Role of Transport Infrastructure in Sino-African Relations'. This one-day conference is an effort to engage critically with the political, economic, sociological and anthropological questions regarding central motivations, organizing principles, modes of operation and imagined futures in the planning, construction and implementation of Chinese-built transport infrastructure across the continent.
