European countries have become more aligned on how to deal with China in the past years, but national approaches towards the country still vary. In this episode of the MERICS China Podcast, we zoom in on Austria, Denmark, and Ireland and how their relationships with China have evolved, how they work with Brussels on China issues, and what is in store for the near future.

Johannes Heller-John is joined by Alexander Davey, analyst at MERICS, Lucas Erlbacher, research associate with the Austrian Institute for European and Security Studies, and Andreas Forsby, senior researcher with the Danish Institute for International Studies. They contributed the country chapters for Ireland, Austria, and Denmark, respectively, in the most recent report of the European Thinktank Network on China (ETNC).
