Mapping Europe-China Relations: A Bottom-up Approach
This seminar will present the findings of the first report produced by the European Think-tank Network on China (ETNC), a network of China experts from EU member states launched at the initiative of Ifri and Elcano in November 2014, and devoted to the study of Chinese foreign policy and EU-China relations.
Based on a precise examination of the various state-level, bilateral relationships and interests at play between China and EU countries, the seminar will underline the key points of convergence but also divergence existing between the China’s policies of member states. Starting from this bottom-up perspective, the discussion ultimately aims to consider how these member states and the EU as a whole can better coordinate their various approaches to China.
