Europe and China’s New Silk Roads

Edited by: Frans-Paul van der Putten, John Seaman, Mikko Huotari, Alice Ekman, Miguel Otero-Iglesias

The European Think-tank Network on China (ETNC) is a gathering of China experts from a selection of European policy research institutes. It is devoted to the study of Chinese foreign policy and European Union (EU)-China relations and facilitates regular exchanges among participating researchers. ETNC strives to deepen the understanding of how Europe, as a complex set of actors, relates with China and how China's development and evolving global role will impact the future of Europe. When examining the EU-China relationship, the network's discussions, analyses and recommendations take a decidedly 'bottom-up' approach, examining the bilateral relationships between individual EU member states and China in order to generate a more complex perspective on the broader EU-China relationship.

This report contains the following articles regarding the Europe-China relations on the back of China's One Belt One Road (OBOR) initiative, which are contributed by various academics and/or analysts.
