Also drawing on the ‘stocktaking’ conference on the 2020 Strategic Agenda held by the Chair and the Centre in May 2019, this high-profile event will seek to examine the various areas of cooperation with a forward-looking eye, trying to draw possible agendas and  scenarios envisaging how Brussels and Beijing might deal with each other, as well as with other global actors, in the coming years.

Proposals of max. 300 words, along with a short bio and contact details, are to be submitted to Dr Duncan FREEMAN (duncan.freeman [at] by 12 January 2020. Authors of accepted papers will be contacted shortly after. Travel and accommodation expenses will be covered by the organisers.
