The EU-Asia relationship has changed, from development assistance to cooperation – and possibly competition. This report explores an overhaul of the EU’s 2001 Asia Strategy, more important than ever in the context of Asian economic growth and the US ‘pivot’.

Can the EU expand its role in Asian institutions and non-traditional security, acting a neutral arbiter in this volatile region? The report includes contributions from practitioners and academics on EU relations with ASEAN, Australia, Burma, India, Japan, Korea, and China.
