Paul Crookes - The Developing Landscape of EU-China Relations
|6 April 2022
|14:00 - 15:00
|What is it:
|The University of Manchester
This presentation will analyse the current relationship between the European Union and China to assess the key characteristics and issues of tension in major policy areas, presenting evidence of ongoing opportunities for cooperation on the one hand but also of serious inhibitors to progress and areas of overt conflict on the other. In so doing, the presentation will examine how the EU’s engagement with China as a distinctly normative power within the international system is evolving and will outline how the complex political and institutional structures in Europe continue to impact EU-China relations.
The event is co-organised with the Manchester Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence (JMCE) and will take place in a hybrid format, both in-person and online.
