Mind the Gap: Priorities for Transatlantic China Policy

Joint report by the Aspen Strategy Group, Munich Security Conference and MERICS

China is at the top of the transatlantic agenda. Throughout the first half of 2021, the Distinguished Reflection Group on Transatlantic China Policy, 21 individuals with a wealth of expertise on China and transatlantic relations - including MERICS' experts Bernhard Bartsch, Mikko Huotari and Jan Weidenfeld, worked to advocate a more joined-up approach to China. Its report outlines priorities and provides recommendations for strategies to shape transatlantic China policy. Download the report here:

In addition to this joint report, we recorded a MERICS podcast with one of the authors.  Jan Weidenfeld, Director Policy and Advisory at MERICS, is one of the contributors to the report accessible on this page. Claudia Wessling, Director Communications and Publications, discusses transatlantic China policy with him.  Listen to the podcast here:
