The EU and East Asia's Strategic Balance

The EU and East Asia's Strategic Balance

(p.145) 7 The EU and East Asia's Strategic Balance
Remaking Global Order

Nicola Casarini

Oxford University Press

This chapter traces the process leading to the emergence of changing perceptions of the EU in East Asia following the establishment of an EU—China techno‐political linkage and the proposal to lift the EU arms embargo on China. The first part examines Europe's traditional involvement in East Asian security affairs, including the Taiwan question and cross‐Strait relations. In the second part, this chapter analyses the novelty represented by the promotion of EU space and defence interests in China, including its impact on a regional environment characterized by the security dilemma and balance of power logic. This chapter concludes with a discussion on whether, and to what extent, the promotion of EU space and defence interests in China coupled with the peculiar characteristics of East Asia's international system has made the EU to be perceived as a novel strategic factor in the region.

Keywords:   EU Asia policy, involvement, Taiwan, cross‐Strait relations, Japan, United States, China, balance of power, perceptions, regional security
