As the European Union (EU) prepares for a new round of parliamentary elections, how should the bloc consider its strategy towards China?

To evaluate the EU's policy framework towards China, this study analyses the varied facets of bilateral relations and the EU’s approach towards China, including its policy of de-risking, together with issues relating to China’s domestic politics and foreign policy. It highlights the need for the EU to adopt a coherent vision and a comprehensive and consistent long-term China strategy that can guide its future actions towards China and on the world stage. Based on its findings, it also provides a series of specific recommendations for the EU on the numerous topics analysed in the study.

John Seaman [1], Research fellow at Ifri's Center for Asian Studies, was a co-author of this study, notably contributed to alysis on the concepts of de-risking and economic security in the EU's relation with China
