This book brings together 30 papers commissioned from 2011 to 2013 by the EU-funded Europea€“China Research and Advice Network (ECRAN). These papers, thematically grouped in sections on economics, society and politics, were written by some of the world's leading China experts in Europe, and give a European perspective of this complex relationship. The papers provide a broad overview of how Europeans see the key challenges currently faced by China and Europe as well as a unique insight into the related policy aspects of the vexed and complex relationship of the two largest trading partners in the world. The EUa€“China Relationship: European Perspectives is written in a highly pragmatic manner, focusing on specific political, economic and social issues that impact on international relations. It is an essential EU toolkit and policy handbook for academics and policy makers in government and business who are engaging with China, not just in the EU but across the world.
