Technological advances and growing rivalries between the world’s economic superpowers are intensifying geostrategic competition. The United States, China, Europe and other ambitious players must align their economies to reflect the emerging realities. As a new Bertelsmann Stiftung study shows: German companies clearly want an effective Europe capable of asserting itself and European business interests on the world stage.

Establishing transnational skills partnerships https://www.bertelsmann-stiftung.de/en/our-projects/making-fair-migration-a-reality/project-topics/establishing-transnational-skills-partnerships https://www.bertelsmann-stiftung.de/en/our-projects/making-fair-migration-a-reality/project-topics/establishing-transnational-skills-partnerships generic term for transnational models that link development-oriented migration policy with (vocational) education policy, and thus aim at a fair distribution of the benefits associated with the migration of skilled workers. In instances where skills partnerships begin at the skills-development phase, rather than later with the recruitment of skilled workers, they have the potential to strengthen the pool of skilled labor globally. They also help generate the necessary balance of interests between all parties and reduce harmful effects of labor migration such as brain drains. In this way, countries of origin no longer derive gains solely from the remittances sent home by migrants, but also benefit from a vital boost to their domestic vocational-training systems and labor markets. Germany also benefits by gaining access to skilled workers from abroad, and can steer the urgently needed migration of skilled workers into orderly, regular and thus secure channels.

Cold War 2.0? Essential Readings on the New Systemic Conflict 05/21 https://www.bertelsmann-stiftung.de/en/our-projects/germany-and-asia/systemic-rivalry/202105-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/202105-cold-war-20-essential-readings-on-the-new-systemic-conflict-kopie-1 Welcome to the May issue of our literature review on the systemic conflict with China. The EU is developing a new Indo-Pacific strategy and taking a tougher stance on China. The European Commission recently warned of China's "authoritarian shift" and "fundamental divergences" between the EU and China in the areas of business, human rights and global governance. The G7 foreign ministers agreed on a common stance toward an increasingly assertive China. Yet Berlin and Paris continue to give Washington the cold shoulder when it comes to the U.S. administration's efforts to build a unified front against China. This passivity has major implications for transatlantic cooperation not only on China, but also on other issues. While some of its most important allies still hesitate, Washington continues to implement its strategy of "extreme competition" with China. In his first joint address to Congress on April 28, U.S. President Biden spoke out against the forces that threaten democratic values and casted U.S.-China relations as a battle between democracy and autocracy. China continues to adhere to its ambitions to reshape the international order according to its own ideas but is experiencing that its "soft power" is being perceived with increasing skepticism, especially in Europe. In addition, China, for its part, had to learn that it cannot count on automatically converting its growing economic clout into a new geopolitical reality. Notwithstanding this, economic and technological competition continues to accelerate. In its 14th Five-Year Plan, Beijing has mapped out an economic strategy signaling greater protectionism to products not made in China. For its part, the European Commission released new policy proposals addressing economic and strategic challenges posed by 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 an interesting read.
