    Abstract:
    The purpose of this article is to investigate how the current China-Africa relations integrate the Political Economy of the World-System. The paper starts by explaining the theoretical framework of the research, the World-systems theory. Upon examination of the current economic and trade relationship between China and Africa, the research assessed two different models that the underdeveloped economies integrate the international economy: the excluding-insertion and the including-insertion. The article used the descriptive-qualitative methodology, using primary and secondary sources. The results indicate that China, when dealing with Africa, is reproducing exploitative power behaviour, the same way all nations are or have been part of the "leader circle" of the world-system have done previously.
