Thursday, February 24, 2022, 9:30am to 10:30am


Virtual event, registration required

This event has been rescheduled from Wednesday, February 23rd to Thursday, February 24th at the same time, 9:30-10:30 AM ET.

Join the Ash Center, Harvard Kennedy School China Society, and the Mossavar-Rahmani Center for Business and Government (M-RCBG) for a discussion on China's impact on "vulnerable" states in Europe with Philippe Le Corre, a research fellow with the Ash Center and M-RCBG. The emergence of China as a major economic and diplomatic player has brought special challenges to many countries. Among those are vulnerable countries, which sometimes struggle to manage and mitigate political and economic risks from external powers. This conversation will focus on cases in southeastern and central European countries including Greece, Hungary and Romania, as well as a discussion on the broader state of EU-China relations. Nathalie Tocci, Director of the Istituto Affari Internazionali, will moderate.
