While concern arises in Europe for the Eu-China Comprehensive Agreement on Investment (CAI) agreed last December 30th 2020, there’s little knowledge of what China ambition is, and how Xi Jinping, China’s Leader, is culturally oriented to achieve it.
China is a Communist Party Regime. How China thinks - and how China financially and geopolitically acts - is quite a relevant issue to understand, for both policymakers as well citizens in Europe.
China shows attitude for breaching the International Rule of Law based Order as well as for denyig people Human Rights, both in China and in China-dominated countries.
China proves also able to exercise pressure on Europe - by lobbying Brussels regulators, being financially seductive with single Eu member states or intimidating European Universities unwilling to disseminate the regime propaganda.
In this podcast, Simona Bonfante talks about China ambition in Europe with:
Federico Brusadelli, Researcher "in Chinese History at University of Naples “L’Orientale". Federico helps getting into Xi Jinping Philosophy, reflecting on the concept of the Rule by Law as disctint from the one, internationally agreed of Rule of Law, with a reflection upon how China intimitating pressure is exercised on academics around Europe.
Octavian Lazea, MA Student in International Relations at ULB - and Eumans activist, joins also the conversation, with a focus on European Civic Society sort of indifference for the risk China may represent for European interests.
