About the Authors
  • Over the past decade, the EU and China have expanded their relations beyond a focus on economic and trade issues to the sphere of security. Taking a broad definition of security, a multidisciplinary approach, and a comparative perspective (including scholars from both Europe and China), this book provides an in-depth analysis of the extent to which the EU and China not only express similar threat concerns, or make declarations about joint responses, but also adopt concrete measures in the pursuance of security cooperation. In particular, the book seeks to explore a range of key themes in the field of EU-China security cooperation such as nuclear proliferation, international terrorist threats and cyber attacks. Besides providing an overview of the areas where security cooperation exists and where it does not, it also highlights the aspects of convergence and divergence and the reasons for their occurrence.

    • Offers a detailed analysis of EU-China security relations, bringing together security experts, environmentalists, political scientists, sociologists and economists
    • Takes an integrated approach, pairing scholars from China and Europe in the writing in each chapter
    • Offers a broad view of security, covering military security as well as issues of human, environmental and economic security

    Reviews & endorsements

    'This book is essential reading for those who want to understand the current state of security relations between the EU and China. A clear framework that all authors follow, extensive use of original materials by subject-area experts, and excellent editing work make for a lucid and dispassionate overview of the Sino-European security relationship. Good scholarship, it seems, still has not had enough of experts.' Ramon Pachesco Pardo, European Security
