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.

Cold War 2.0? Essential Readings on the New Systemic Conflict 04/21 https://www.bertelsmann-stiftung.de/en/our-projects/germany-and-asia/202104-cold-war-20-essential-readings-on-the-new-systemic-conflict-kopie-1 https://www.bertelsmann-stiftung.de/en/our-projects/germany-and-asia/202104-cold-war-20-essential-readings-on-the-new-systemic-conflict-kopie-1 Welcome to the April issue of our literature review on the systemic conflict with China. EU-China relations have deteriorated dramatically in recent weeks. After the EU imposed sanctions against four Chinese individuals and one entity involved in human rights abuses against the Muslim minority in Xinjiang on March 22, Beijing responded with retaliatory sanctions targeting ten EU individuals and their family members as well as four entities, including the European Council's Political and Security Committee, the subcommittee on Human Rights of the European Parliament and the think tank MERICS. China's unprecedentedly harsh response has further fueled the debate over how to deal with the People's Republic. Beijing’s retaliatory sanctions have made it unmistakably clear that it is a systemic rival to democracies around the world that will subject liberal values to their greatest test since the early days of the Cold War. Europe must position itself vis-à-vis this strategic rivalry but finds itself lacking a consistent policy. In contrast, the U.S. is in the process of implementing its strategy toward China. Against this backdrop, transatlantic cooperation on China is more important than ever. Early indications are that this collaboration is finally picking up steam. Meanwhile economic and technological competition continues to accelerate. 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.
