The Centre for EU-Asia Connectivity (CEAC) generates critical academic analysis in order to enhance a differentiated and strategic understanding of EU-Asia affairs and the factors that strengthen and inhibit connectivity within and between the two regions. The Centre contributes to research and teaching in the areas of EU studies and EU-Asia relations in a globalised and yet increasingly fragmented world economy. It approaches the understanding of EU-Asia affairs and the role of connectivity from an interdisciplinary perspective.
CEAC stimulates academic debates on conceptualising and analysing connectivity-related challenges and opportunities for the EU’s role in a rapidly changing global environment. At the same time, the Centre facilitates cooperation between relevant stakeholders at the local, regional, and global level, and functions as a communication platform with a public outreach.
