Perspectives for a European Security Strategy Towards Asia: Views from Asia, Europe and the US by Gustaaf Geeraerts

As the geopolitical point of gravity moves to the east, the European Union (EU) faces the challenge of ongoing global power shifts, and this study addresses the options, opportunities, and obstacles that lie ahead as the EU becomes a security actor in Asia and Africa. Contributors address a number of key issues, including the EU’s soft power, overall strategic planning, European interests in Asia, and the role of Russia in Asia’s security climate.
