Dr. Jupiter Wang
Wei WANG (Jupiter) received his PhD in the Department of Social Work and Social Administration at the University of Hong Kong. His research explores China’s multi-dimensional global influences on Africa through ethnographic inquiries with grounded Chinese-African interactions. He previously studied the African community in Guangzhou, China.

It spotlights global China’s incompatible hard and soft power as a rising global South instead of a global North country.
