Closing statement: Prof. Emil Kirchner, Essex University

You are warmly invited to a Round Table discussion on the current state and future perspectives of relations between the European Union and its Asian partners on the occasion of the publication of The Palgrave Handbook of EU-Asia Relations. This event is organised jointly by the Jean Monnet Research Group on EU-Asia Relations (http://www.gear-online.eu) and the European Institute for Asian Studies.


This edited book, arising from a large international collaborative research project part-funded by the European Union’s Jean Monnet programme, fills a gap in the analysis of EU-Asia relations. The European Union and Asia are two regions undergoing significant changes internally while at the same time developing stronger relations with each other. In the context of an emerging multi-polar world, Europe and Asia are seen as major actors, making their relations increasingly crucial for the understanding of global politics. The Handbook is distinctive because it constitute a thoroughly comprehensive collection of 40 contributions from a variety of disciplines and perspectives, bringing together leading authors in their respective fields. Contributors come from Europe, Asia, North America and Australia, thereby providing a genuinely global perspective on this important topic. For further details regarding the book and its contributors, please refer to the relevant page on the publisher’s website at http://www.palgrave.com/products/title.aspx?PID=549801).
