European Union’s bilateral relations with China

The Mission of the Peopleʼs Republic of China to the EU provided funds to CEPS in the framework of a number of anticipated activities, structured around the general topic of the European Unionʼs bilateral relations with China. With the aim of building a strategic and trusting cooperation between each other, CEPS provided a platform for […]

Systemic rivalry and balancing interests

Authors: Steven Blockmans and Weinian Hu For years, the EU has refrained from criticising China’s attempts to shape globalisation according to its own interests. Member states have allowed the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) to tip the balance of power towards the companies that China owns or subsidises. Alarmed by recent Chinese takeovers in strategic […]

2nd EU-China Forum: The Road Less Travelled – European Involvement in China’s Belt and Road Initiative

DUE TO UNFORESEEN CIRCUMSTANCES, THIS EVENT IS CANCELLED. China’s Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) has been described as everything from the Chinese Marshall Plan to a tool for debt-trap diplomacy. Extensive reporting on the BRI has been done from political, economic, and strategic perspectives, but much less has been written from the business perspective. The […]

EU-India: a renewed strategic partnership or business as usual?

In 2004, India and the European Union signed a strategic partnership, based on the shared values and principles of democracy, the rule of law, human rights and the promotion of peace and stability. Today, though, free trade negotiations are stalled and the two sides have yet to find common ground to move forward on key […]

Can Europe offer a Green Deal to the world?

In its attempt to strengthen the EU’s role in the world and notably vis-à-vis the other global powers, the new von der Leyen Commission is seeking to use climate change to underpin EU leadership ambitions. The failure of COP25 in Madrid to reach a satisfactory conclusion flags up how hard it will be for the […]

No longer a new kid on the block – China in the Middle East

Given China’s growing role in the complex security dynamics in the Middle East and North Africa, the EU should intensify its dialogue and, where interests coincide, joint action with Beijing. Last month’s Chinese Communist Party Congress, with its stress on President Xi Jinping’s strong leadership at home and abroad, has sparked much discussion on how […]

The Eastern Partnership at 10

The EU’s Eastern Partnership programme is often underestimated for what it has accomplished but overestimated for what it can achieve. Ten years since its formal launch on 7 May 2009, the EaP has brought sizeable benefits in terms of political association, economic relations and regulatory convergence. But the programme is not one of the EU’s […]

Why Europe should harden its soft power to lawfare

EU law has lost its shine as the legal gold standard. The so-called Brussels effect – the impact of EU law on its neighbours and global corporations operating in the single market, has been waning for years. Nowadays, its effect is mostly felt in anti-trust law, or in the chemicals directive or the General Data […]

Extraterritorial sanctions with a Chinese trademark

China has recently updated its laws on the (security) screening of foreign investment, promulgated a new export controls law, drawn up an ‘unreliable entity’ list, and adopted an EU-style statute blocking the extraterritorial jurisdiction of US law. Beijing wages legal warfare (‘lawfare’) against Hong Kong, in the South China Sea, along the Belt and Road, […]

China and the EU: The contradictions of exercising joint trade leadership

Author: Jacques Pelkmans China and the EU seem condemned to each other in matters of global trade and investment. In world trade, there are only three potential ‘leaders’ – China, the EU and the US – with ‘critical mass’ in trade and, in varying degrees, foreign direct investment. One of them has shaken off responsibility […]

EU-China Leadership in Trade Policy: Feasible? Desirable?

With Trumpism stirring controversy in world trade diplomacy, the other large trading partners are well advised to assume leadership in economic openness and responsible globalisation, argue the authors in this CEPS Commentary. The EU and China both disagree with Trumpism and have every reason to withstand it if they take firm leadership. They could even […]

EU-Russia relations and Europe’s global profile

Relations between great powers have worsened in recent years, prompting High Representative Josep Borrell to assert that the European Union must learn to “use the language of power”. When it comes to the EU’s relations with Russia in particular, the need for such a language has become evident. Borrell’s trip this week to visit his […]

EU dithering leaves Western Balkans prey to other suitors

After years of taking the Western Balkan region for granted, there were great expectations that the European Commission’s strategy paper published in February 2018 would herald a new and more determined EU engagement. Unfortunately, this has not been the case, raising serious concerns as to whether some member states fully grasp what is at stake […]

The New EU Strategy on Central Asia

For the EU, Central Asia has always been a lower priority area given the greater interests and more urgent developments in its immediate neighbourhood. But NATO withdrawal from Afghanistan, the export of violent extremism after the rise and fall of ISIS, massive Chinese investments, and Russian attempts to regain influence have inflicted collateral damage on […]

Trade policy-making under irrationality

Jacques Pelkmans reminds the EU and its WTO partners that trust and the global public good of a rules-based WTO are fragile accomplishments that deserve to be protected, even if the means seem to come from a former imperial age. Understanding Trump’s decision of March 8th to go ahead and sign up to tariff increases […]

A surprising new alliance: Europe and Japan

Almost surreptitiously, Europe and Japan are discovering they have a great deal in common, joining up to defend free trade, democracy and the rule of law. For decades, low-grade commercial friction and political indifference marked the relationship. Japan’s powerful car industry frightened European industrialists while its closed agricultural market angered European farmers. Geopolitically, Europe discounted […]

China’s CPTPP membership bid

As the Comprehensive and Progressive Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) is a regional trade agreement with high thresholds for market liberalisation on regulatory issues, it came somewhat as a surprise that China formally applied to join the 11 member pact on 16 September 2021. Aside from the multitude of geopolitical complications looming large in the region, ranging […]
