Conflict, competition or cooperation? How historical experience and future choices will shape China's relations with the EU and UK

Feb 06, 2023 | 05:00 PM s.t.

The Centre for British Studies at Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin presents a lecture by Professor Dr Rana Mitter OBE FBA, Professor of the History and Politics of Modern China (St Cross College, Faculty of History, University of Oxford). 

Ideology, economics and history - these are the factors that will shape China in the 2020s and in its relationship with Europe. What will be the role of a China shaped by a new nationalism and a revived interest in Marxism? What does the new "dual circulation" model of the economy mean for China's superpower ambitions? How does the complex history of war and revolution shape Chinese thinking today? And how will relations with Brussels, Berlin and London change as China contemplates its "national rejuvenation"?

Rana Mitter OBE FBA is Professor of the History and Politics of Modern China, and a Fellow of St Cross College at the University of Oxford. He is the author of several books, including Forgotten Ally: China's World War II (2013) which won the 2014 RUSI/Duke of Westminster's Medal for Military Literature, and was named a Book of the Year in the Financial Times and Economist. His latest book is China's Good War: How World War II is Shaping a New Nationalism (Harvard, 2020).
