On behalf of the Jean Monnet Chair “Connecting Europe and Asia: People, Power and Policies” (CEAPPP) you are cordially invited to participate in the upcoming lecture on “The Current State of China-EU Relations and Europe-Asia Connectivity”. The lecture will be delivered by Prof. Zhang Xiaotong of Fudan University, Shanghai and organised by the Department of International Political Economy of East Asia, Faculty of East Asian Studies, Ruhr-Universität Bochum.
Connectivity spans transport, political, economic, digital and people-to-people links and can be understood as an important means to shape the geo-economic and geo-political landscape of the 21st century. Connectivity between Europe and Asia is high on the policy agenda of the European Union and relations between the EU and China do form a decisive part of the overall rapidly changing economic, political and strategic contexts in a post-Covid-19 world. As the international system is evolving further, state and non-state actors in Europe and Asia alike are facing new challenges and opportunities. Our guest speaker will present his analysis of the scope and limitations of connectivity and the role of China and the EU therein. All participants are invited to engage in the succeeding Q&A session.
