Mapping Europe-China Relations: A Bottom-Up Approach
A Report by the European Think-tank Network on China (ETNC), October 2015
As China’s rise continues to shape and shake the course of international affairs, and Europe enters a new chapter in its collective history, Europe-China relations are becoming more relevant, but also much more complex.
This report is the first in an on-going effort of dissecting and re-assembling Europe-China relations from an EU member state perspective. As the European Think-tank Network on China (ETNC) develops, recommendations will emerge on how these member states and the EU as a whole can better coordinate their various approaches to China. In this regard, ETNC strives for a broad, pan-European representation in the network and thus encourages institutions with experts on China from member states that are not yet present to join the initiative. Thus, we are looking forward to expanding the ETNC network and to further institutionalise our regular exchanges and collaborative work.
