China as a global player in trade: implications for Europe

Dr. Clara Weinhardt (Assistant Professor in International Relations at Maastricht University and Non-Residential Fellow at the Global Public Policy Institute in Berlin)
China’s rise has gone hand in hand with a central role in global trade. By now, China has overtaken the United States as the most important trading partner. Since Russia’s invastion in Ukraine, however, Europe increasingly sees economic dependence as a potential security risk. In response, the European Union has established a number of new economic policy instruments, such as investment screening or regulations on subsidies.These instruments seek to defend its trade interest vis-à-vis economic competitiors such as China more assertively. But can they really achieve this? And while these instruments target economic competitors such as China, do they also have implications for Europe’s relations with the developing world.

Clara Weinhardt is an Assistant Professor in International Relations at Maastricht University and Non-Residential Fellow at the Global Public Policy Institute in Berlin. Her research focusses on global trade governance and North-South relations in light of global power shifts. Her empirical research focuses on EU-Africa relations and emerging economies, especially China.
