After the summer break NEU is back. And our focus for this number is on the EU/China summit. It is our tradition as Europeans to often analyze the world on the basis of categories which are always related to the Western world i.e. Europe and the United States. In the meanwhile, during the last 30 years China grew incredibly while we have been experiencing economical and political crisis in various moments in time. This brings today Asia at the centre of the spectrum, with an actor that was often less considered than others, but which will shape the future economic and political relations of our continent and not only. Let’s start to read in depth this new situation starting by this last summit. And welcome back to NEU.
