Asia is not only home to enormous flows of trade, but also political and security challenges. Power imbalances at the regional level are particularly visible and risk undermining global stability. In particular, after the crisis, external actors like the U.S. and the EU will be looking for new roles in the region.
Is there any room for coordination between traditional regional powers after Covid- 19? Is the EU ready and equipped with the instruments and the political will to assign the necessary resources and political capital to increase its engagement in Asia?
The event is promoted within the Asia & Europe Initiative "Pathways to Recovery in Post-Pandemic Asia" which gathers together leading experts, Asian and European think thank representatives, as well as Italian companies and agencies to discuss on the relations between Asia and Europe after COVID-19.
The initiative is comprised by a public roundtable and two closed-door workshops.
Ispi has always been careful to ensure an inclusive working environment and to be attentive to gender diversity and to the plurality of voices represented in its initiatives. When this is not reflected in one of our publications or events, it is due to the unavailability of the consulted experts to participate or to challenges in identifying specific profiles in our network.
