The European Dimension of China's Great Transition: West European China Policies, 1969-1982

Forum on Geopolitics, Department of Politics and International Studies (POLIS).

Presenting his recently published monograph, Dr Martin Albers discusses how Britain, France and West Germany set about dealing with the People's Republic at the age of détente and contributed to the foundations of China's spectacular economic rise since the 1970s. He shows how the governments in Bonn, Paris and London all tried to find ways of dealing with Europe’s declining global influence, and promote their own national interests in Asia against the background of the Cold War, the end of Maoism, and the emergence of globalization. The talk casts light on the inextricable nature of economic and diplomatic affairs between the People’s Republic of China and Western Europe, and is bound to be of relevance to anybody with an interest in Sino-European relations and post-1945 international history more generally. The session will be chaired by Professor David Reynolds, Professor of International History and a Fellow of Christ’s College.
