Workshop: China in Europe: Economics, Political and Geo-strategic Challenges
News from Nov 21, 2019
In an era of increasing economic interdependence China is playing a growing role in the global economy, including in Europe, which presents both opportunities and challenges. This conference aims to analyse the different dimensions of an increasingly assertive Chinese presence in Europe from Economics to Politics and Geo-strategy.
The seminar invites 25-30 students and leading experts to reflect on China’s Belt and Road initiative, the ‘Made in China 2025’ plan, the China 17+1 initiative and Trade disputes between China, the US and Europe. We will also look at questions of technology competition and critical infrastructure investment.
The event will take place in Portugal — one of the most exposed European economies to Chinese investment – , in the Royal Building of Mafra (25km from Lisbon), which has recently been distinguished as a World Heritage Site by UNESCO.
We welcome applications from master’s and doctoral students who wish to either just join the discussions, or give a paper. Applications should include the Europaeum application form, a brief CV, a statement of purpose (up to 500 words), and a reference letter by their supervisor or academic advisor. Those who wish to submit a paper should also add a short abstract of the proposed paper (up to 500 words).
Students currently enrolled on master’s or PhD courses at a Europaeum member university can apply. Successful candidates will be provided with accommodation free of charge and will be reimbursed reasonable travel expenses within Europe.
The workshop will take place from the 12th to 14th of February 2020. Submit applications by December 5th, 2019.
