China en América Latina: Derecho, Economía y Desarrollo Sostenible

Carmen G. Gonzalez


The growing economic and political ties between China and Latin America have sparked controversy among scholars, pundits, and policy-makers. Some scholars contend that China is a rising imperial power engaged in a scramble for the resources of the developing world and a competitive threat to Latin America. Others applaud China's unorthodox development strategies and portray China as a successful model for developing countries. This paper interrogates the competing narratives about China's growing influence in Latin America and examines the implications of China's rise for the future of international economic law and international environmental law.
