Opinion Piece: What Does It Really Mean for Europe to ‘De-Risk’ Its Relationship with China?

In ChinaFile’s regular Conversation section, Bruegel Senior Fellow Alicia García-Herrero and four other leading China experts provide their assessment of European de-risking strategies vis-à-vis China. How aligned is Europe, what is understood by de-risking, and where does the EU and its member states go from here? In her contribution to the discussion García-Herrero zooms in on the complexity of de-risking from China while at the same time continuing the European decarbonisation efforts.
