From the Fringes to the Forefront: How Extreme Parties in the European Parliament Can Shape EU-China Relations

In recent years, the European Union has encountered significant difficulties in its relationship with China, necessitating a comprehensive recalibration of its policy frameworks. As a key participant in the legislative process, the European Parliament has the ability to either enhance or dilute the EU’s array of policy tools concerning China.

Beijing has been aware of the significant role the EU institutions play in shaping the bloc’s policy towards it. Thus it has become increasingly important for China to engage with and potentially influence legislators at not only the national but also the European levels.

The study From the Fringes to the Forefront: How Extreme Parties in the European Parliament Can Shape EU-China Relations, authored by Dr. Ivana Karásková and Kara Němečková, looks at the methods that China uses to approach European politicians, analyzes the current European Parliament’s position on China and discusses how predicted gains in seats by far right- and left-wing political parties may influence any new EP stance on China.
