Is China the New Driving Force of European Integration? Les Jeudis de l'Ifri

A "Les Jeudis de l'Ifri" videoconference around Marc JULIENNE, Research Fellow and Head of China Research at Ifri's Center for Asian Studies.

If we stick to the official Chinese discourse, the Sino-European relationship has never seen so many development opportunities as it does today. The fight against climate change, the promotion of multilateralism in the face of American unilateralism, the management of COVID-19... In all these issues, Beijing sees the alignment of European and Chinese interests. Paradoxically, the tone is hardening in Europe and the consensus is broadening to adopt a more firm common policy towards China. In the aftermath of the EU-China summit in September 14th, 2020, and a few weeks before the United States presidential election, how can this dichotomy be understood and what prospects does it draw for the future of this relationship's ?


Chair : Thomas Gomart, director of Ifri.
