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

30 January 2014 - 1:00pm to 2:00pm

Chatham House, London


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



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.
