Report on Asian views on Europe’s Role for Security in a Multipolar World

June 18, 2021 - 17:46

The Third NFG (Nachwuchsforschungsgruppe) Academic Council Meeting was held in New Delhi, India, on 26-27 September 2013 in association with Jawaharlal Nehru University (JNU), the Observer Research Foundation, and the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung India. The Conference on ‘Europe’s Role for Security in a Multipolar World: the Views from India and China’ brought together academics, practitioners, and policy makers from Europe, India and China, with the aim of bridging the gap between academic and policy debates in Asia and Europe. 

This third Annual Conference built upon the discussions and results of previous conferences in Berlin (2011) and Beijing (2012), and brought together a community of distinguished policy-makers and scholars from India, China, Japan, the United States and Europe to discuss and compare their perspectives on Asian perceptions of the EU as a security actor.

The conference also provided a platform to present the most recent findings from extensive field research in the NFG’s two core case studies: EU-Asian cooperation in (i) peacekeeping and (ii) export control regimes. Discussion also centred on the role of strategic partnerships, diff erences between the EU and the US model of security, as well as past, present and future roles for the EU as a security actor in Asia.
A full report of the Conference has now been released. Go for the report.
