The Value of Citizen Diplomacy: The EU-China High Level People-to-People Dialogue

Chatham House, London

Asia Programme

Participants

Dr Andreas Fulda, Senior Fellow, China Policy Institute, University of Nottingham

Overview

The speaker will discuss the EU-China High Level People-to-People Dialogue and how underfunding has limited the effectiveness of citizen diplomacy at this intersection of government, the private sector and civil society. He will argue that the European Commission should remedy this shortcoming by supporting grassroots level dialogues involving European and Chinese civil societies, particularly those aimed at social and cultural exchanges.
