EU-China relations in 2024, with Abigaël Vasselier

What are the most pressing issues in EU-China relations in 2024? What does Europe need to focus on in managing relations with China? How might China seek to exploit the campaign season, in which Europe will be preoccupied with its own problems?

In this MERICS China podcast, Abigaël Vasselier, Director Policy & European Affairs/Head of Program Foreign Relations at MERICS, discusses these and other questions with Claudia Wessling, Director Communications and Publications.
