    Houlden has served in the Canadian foreign service since 1976 before joining the University of Alberta in 2008. Twenty-two years of his career with the Government of Canada were focused on Chinese affairs. He was also the director of the Eastern and Southern African Divisions of what was previously the Department of Foreign Affairs. Houlden last served as Director General of the East Asian Bureau in the Department of Foreign Affairs and International Trade before leaving the foreign service. He has also served on the Board of Governors of the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), and on Alberta’s Asia Advisory Council. Professor Houlden will address China's role in the international system, its longstanding relations with African states, and perspectives on its deepening presence in Africa in the 21st century.
