Europe in the World

Prospects for EU-Asia Relations

20 October 2004
Fraser Cameron (Senior Adviser to EPC on international programmes)

As the European Union seeks to expand its influence on the global stage it has struggled to find a balanced relationship with Asia. Only in the past few years, with the launching of the ASEM process in 1996, has the EU sought to deal with Asia as a region. In this Working Paper, Fraser Cameron examines the future prospects for intensified relations between the European Union and Asia, beyond bilateral ties.
