ECIPE Afternoon Conference: China rise to global power: What does China want and what should Europe want from China?

March 05 2013
Venue: Thon Hotel EU Brussels, Rue de la Loi 75, 1040 City of Brussels
Speakers: Frank Lavin, Krishnan Srinivasan, Rebecca Fabrizi, Guy de Jonquières, Xu Qiuyan
Time: 14:15

Will China, as some observers claim, rule the world in the 21st century? Is it inevitable that China will become a global economic leader? And will China carve out a corresponding role in security and military policy – even be on par with the United States?

Few areas prompt people in the West to so much speculation and forecasting as the rise of China. Too often, these speculations breed misperceptions – exaggerated or in other ways flawed perceptions of where China finds itself in its economic and political development. And sometimes they trigger misguided policy responses in Europe and elsewhere. So what is a realistic scenario for China? What does China want to achieve in international policy? And what are the consequences for how Europe should design its China policy?
