The European Union Global Gateway: Approaching the Indo-Pacific Differently


The Center for International Studies (CERI)/Sciences Po, in partnership with the European Institute for Asian Studies (EIAS), is pleased to invite you to a hybrid seminar (online and physical attendance at CERI).

The European Union’s “Global Gateway” is a major plan to support the development of infrastructure around the world. While boasting an impressive budget of €300 billions, the Global Gateway is also, and foremost, a geopolitical strategy. The case of Taiwan offers a unique perspective to assess the various implications of Europe’s approach to connectivity in East Asia. This will be the focus of a discussion with distinguished representatives of different EU institutions and from Taiwan’s government and private sector.
