Europe-Asia Relations

Europe-Asia Relations
Building Multilateralisms
Edited by Richard Balme and Brian Bridges
Europe-Asia Relations analyses the increasingly complex and close-knit inter-relations between
these two regions. By addressing both key thematic topics – trade, investment, diplomacy and
security – and crucial bilateral relations with major actors, such as China, Japan, India, as well as
middle powers and regional organizations, this volume provides a comprehensive overview of the
inter-regional relationship. By exploring the substance, manner and dynamics of these interactions at the bilateral, multi-lateral, and inter-regional levels, this volume examines how the
various countries and peoples relate to each other and to the emerging multi-polar and multilateral global order. The Europe-Asia relationship is often described as the weak link in the global
power triangle with the United States. Yet, by using a multi-national and multi-disciplinary group
of authors, this volume sheds new light on this increasingly important relationship, which will be
crucial to the future dynamics of international order.
