Summary: How does French, Portuguese and British colonial history affect contemporary EU-China relations? Great power relationships have by some been defined more by economic factors than by military ones since the end of the Cold War. Does the economic agenda then trump the political agenda of liberal change and human rights in this bilateral relationship today? Is the EU relevant for China in the security realm of the emerging global order? This lecture will address the complex EU-China relationship by tackling these questions and challenges. Prof Shaun Breslin is a leading expert on the politics of China and the EU, published extensively on these topics and currently leads the Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation and the GR:EEN project on Europe’s role in the emerging global order.
