About this book

This book highlights the emerging bidirectional interactions between Europe—primarily the EU—and Asia in the fields of political economy, development, environmental policy, security, diplomacy, and inter-institutional relations within the context of two recent global trends: the rise of China and the growing withdrawal of the U.S. from multilateral commitments. The volume incorporates nine different aspects and dimensions of Asian-European relations. In recent decades, Asia has (re-)gained rising importance on the world stage, which also entails closer interconnections with Europe. In an age of receding American global leadership and reduced commitments to its European allies, the EU and its member states have increasingly become more open to seeking and considering new partnerships. The rising economic prowess of Asia has made it of particular interest for European states. The book’s focus lies on potential challenges and opportunities in the bidirectional interactions between European and Asian states and institutions.

Reviews

“Bibek Chand and Lukas K. Danner take the reader through the current state of EU-Asia relations, with a natural focus on China, encompassing all relevant topics from trade to foreign policy and social issues. The editors offer an up-to-date analysis, making this volume a must-read for anyone interested in contemporary international politics.” (Angela Stanzel, Associate, Asia Division, German Institute for International and Security Affairs, Germany)
“This book focuses on too-often neglected, but important inter-regional interactions between Europe and Asia. The book is informative and timely, given the growing Europe-Asia interactions and cooperation in the context of the changing global strategic environment caused by the rise of China and the uncertainty of the United States. It provides comprehensive perspectives on Europe-Asia relations and contributes to deepening our understanding of strategic dynamics of the inter-regional relations, particularly in the age of COVID-19.” (Kei Koga, Assistant Professor, National University of Singapore, Singapore)
“A timely, thorough, and comprehensive analysis of European-Asian Relations, that will enhance current debates and set the stage for future studies on the subject. It is an essential-read for scholars and students in both European Studies and Asian Studies.” (Emil Kirchner, Jean Monnet Professor, University of Essex, UK)
