Cold War 2.0? Essential Readings on the New Systemic Conflict https://www.bertelsmann-stiftung.de/en/our-projects/germany-and-asia/systemic-rivalry/202103-cold-war-20-essential-readings-on-the-new-systemic-conflict-kopie-1 https://www.bertelsmann-stiftung.de/en/our-projects/germany-and-asia/systemic-rivalry/202103-cold-war-20-essential-readings-on-the-new-systemic-conflict-kopie-1 Welcome to the March issue of our literature review on the systemic conflict with China. The EU-China Comprehensive Agreement on Investment (CAI) has dominated public discussions about transatlantic cooperation on China since late December and produced some early strains between European policymakers and the new U.S. administration. However, such cooperation still holds great promise. How this potential can be unleashed is the subject of intense debate and, therefore, a focus of this review. At the same time, the strategic competition between the U.S. and China continues to unfold. How this competition can be managed to avoid war is the single most important question of all. Europe must position itself vis-à-vis this strategic rivalry but finds itself in lack of a consistent policy. Another focus of the review is China's response to the escalating strategic competition with the United States, which is characterized by confidence and caution, as well as Beijing’s crimes against humanity, most notably the atrocities it is committing against the Uyghurs in Xinjiang. This review also covers contributions on economic and technological competition, two key arenas of the systemic rivalry with China. As usual, I have tried to map the ongoing debate and point out contributions I consider essential readings. Please feel invited to comment on my selection. I look forward to your feedback. Thanks for reading.

Cold War 2.0? Essential Readings on the New Systemic Conflict https://www.bertelsmann-stiftung.de/en/our-projects/germany-and-asia/systemic-rivalry/202102-cold-war-20-essential-readings-on-the-new-systemic-conflict https://www.bertelsmann-stiftung.de/en/our-projects/germany-and-asia/systemic-rivalry/202102-cold-war-20-essential-readings-on-the-new-systemic-conflict Welcome to the February issue of our literature review on the new systemic conflict with China. On January 22, 2021 the European Commission published the text of the EU-China Comprehensive Agreement on Investment (CAI) following the agreement “in principle announced” on December 30, 2020. The CAI has unleashed a firestorm of criticism in Europe and among the EU's key partners, directed both at the deal itself and at the timing and political context of the agreement. It is therefore a focus of this review, especially as it has significantly complicated transatlantic cooperation on China and the formulation of the Biden administration’s policy toward Beijing. Another focus is China's expanding authoritarianism, as evidenced by intensified efforts to influence media content around the world or its campaign of transnational repression directed at Chinese living abroad. This review also covers contributions on economic and technological competition, key arenas of competition with China. As usual, I have tried to map the ongoing debate and point out contributions I consider essential readings. Please feel invited to comment on my selection. I look forward to your feedback. Wishing you a stimulating read, I do hope this issue of our literature review will provide useful insights for your work.

The book elaborates how the world is changing along various political and non-political megatrends and how EU trade policy can respond appropriately. Particularly important are improved risk management and more commitment to stability in the international trading system.
