The European Union and China in Central Asia
October 30, 2018 @ 7:00 pm - 9:00 pm¥50
This talk provides a comparative analysis of EU and Chinese development assistance towards the Central Asian countries. In doing so, it traces their involvement in the region from 1991 until today, and assesses what impact their assistance has on the ground and how receptive the Central Asian states are to the assistance provided by these two leading actors. Speaker Dr. Fabienne Bossuyt is Assistant Professor at the Centre for EU Studies at Ghent University (Belgium). Her current research projects focus on various aspects of the EU’s relations with and policies towards Central Asia and other post-Soviet countries, including democracy promotion, development policy and human rights promotion.
