Workshop organized by the Paris IAS and Fudan University Shanghai



Over the last decades, China has become a major player in the world trade and the European Union's second largest trade partner after the United States. Economic relations between the EU and China now take up a variety of forms, including technological collaboration in new high tech ventures.

This workshop aims at understanding the place China has now taken in the EU’s economic relations and the tensions it may provoke, as well as presenting new research on the two superpowers’ mutual dependence.
