Blog Home All Blogs
ISTR's new research and networking forum is designed to provide an active and engaging space for our members to share new research being carried out on Covid-19 and the Third Sector. Use this space to share research ideas, identify research partners/collaborators, seek feedback and support on work-in-progress, and solicit and discuss research ideas and methods. Also use this space to publicize relevant reports, op-eds, papers, etc. you have published that might be of interest to your peers and provide links to collections of research being compiled by other organizations that represent third sector sub-fields (philanthropy, volunteerism, governance, legal studies, etc.) or global regions (Asia, LAC, Africa, Europe, etc.) to facilitate the cross-pollination of ideas. We will cross post these on our static resources page: This forum is open to all, though you must be logged in to an ISTR account to post. To post, click on "Add new post" below.

Latin America and China in Times of COVID-19

Posted By Administration, Friday, October 16, 2020

In the first in a new Wilson Center series on “medical diplomacy” in Latin America, the region hardest hit by COVID-19, Professor Cynthia Sanborn of Peru’s Universidad del Pacífico examines the geopolitical implications of China’s robust pandemic response.

In her article, “Latin America and China in Times of COVID-19,” Sanborn outlines Beijing’s “timely, strategic, and significant” contributions to Latin America’s COVID-19 response, beginning almost immediately after the virus reached the region. China’s support has included medical supply donations, the speedy sale of masks, ventilators, and ambulances, and a promised $1 billion donation for coronavirus vaccines. This Chinese effort has vastly outstripped U.S. support. However, Sanborn says the geopolitical consequences are uncertain. Ideological divisions in Latin America and intensifying “superpower rivalries” complicate the region’s dealings with China. Moreover, Latin America’s economic relationship with China remains “concentrated in the export of natural resources and commercial agricultural products,” limiting its contributions to Latin America’s economic diversification and development.
