Seminar: EU-China Security Relations: From Convergence to Cooperation?




15 December 2016

Date: Thursday, 15 December 2016, 16h00 – 18h00. A reception will follow.
Venue: European Institute for Asian Studies (EIAS) Rue de la Loi 26, 10th Floor, 1040 Brussels

Over the past decade, the EU and China have expanded their relations from a dominant focus on economic and trade issues to the sphere of politics. As their shared interests and aims have grown over this time, issues of joint security concerns have become more prominent in their relationship, albeit more in the area of non-traditional security issues than traditional (military) ones and at the bilateral rather than at the global (e.g., United Nations) level. The event will bring together contributors from Europe and China and cover a range of areas in the field of EU-China security cooperation such as nuclear proliferation, international terrorism, cyber attacks, UN peacekeeping operations in Africa, among others.

Speakers include:

Moderator: Prof. Dr. Xinning SONG, Jean Monnet Chair ad personam, Renmin University of China/VUB
