Europe and the Asia Pacific are central to the new global order, acting both as partners and as counter-balances to American power and influence. Through the expanding European Union, the European states collectively have become a major actor in globalization through their economic might and global links. At the same time, economic development and transition politics have transformed the regional and international politics of the Asia Pacific.
Europe-Asia Relations analyses the increasingly complex and close-knit inter-relations between these two regions. By addressing both key thematic topics – trade, investment, diplomacy and security – and crucial bilateral relations with major actors, such as China, Japan, India, as well as middle powers and regional organizations, this volume provides a comprehensive overview of the inter-regional relationship. By exploring the substance, manner and dynamics of these inter-actions at the bilateral, multi-lateral, and inter-regional levels, this volume examines how the various countries and peoples relate to each other and to the emerging multi-polar and multi-lateral global order. The Europe-Asia relationship is often described as the weak link in the global power triangle with the United States. Yet, by using a multi-national and multi-disciplinary group of authors, this volume sheds new light on this increasingly important relationship, which will be crucial to the future dynamics of international order.
