Work packages: EU-China relations

With a PhD in European normative power vis-a-vis China, Zsuzsa’s research focuses on the EU’s approach to Taiwan in the context of EU-China relations and beyond, in the framework of the emerging geopolitical and geoeconomic dynamics in the Indo-Pacific region. In May 2019 Zsuzsa published her book, “Europe, China, and the Limits of Normative Power” offering insights into European influence regarding China’s development. She researches Taiwan’s efforts and policies to position itself in regional economic frameworks and international organizations, exploring the dynamics that shape Taiwan’s self-perception, identity and foreign policy vis-a-vis South East Asia and Europe.
