The Graduate School of Global Politics (GSGP) at Freie Universität Berlin is hosting the Second Workshop on Europe-China Relations on the 4th and 5th of March 2013 in Beijing, China.
Current EU-China relations are marked by two major aspects: firstly, the struggle to establish a strategic link in the form of a Partnership and Cooperation Agreement (PCA). Secondly, EU- China relations are undergoing profound transformations due to the leadership changes in both China and Europe. What do these leadership changes mean for the EU-China strategic partnership? Will they promote it or slow it down? How are the new leaders dealing with key issue areas such as trade, environmental degradation or urbanization? And how do they promote a closer connection between the European and Chinese societies? These central questions will be addressed during the Second Workshop on Europe-China Relations in Global Politics, organized by the Graduate School of Global Politics at Free University Berlin and its partner, the School of International Studies at Renmin University of China in Beijing which will kindly host the Workshop.
The event takes place in the framework of the UACES Collaborative Research Network on EU- China Relations (Graduate School of Global Politics at Free University Berlin/ ESSCA School of Management Shanghai/ College of Europe at Bruges). The event is generously supported by Konrad Adenauer Foundation Beijing.
We cordially invite researchers at all stages of their career, coming from China, Europe and beyond to present their research. Early-stage researchers are particularly encouraged to send their paper proposals.

1) The Role of (New) Leadership in EU-China Relations
2) Strategic Resources and Trade Relations
3) Urbanization and Global Cities
4) ‘Diplomacy from Below’? EU-China People-to-People Exchanges
The working language of the Second Workshop on Europe-China Relations in Global Politics is English.
