Historically Europe and China have caused great changes in the world, both with and against each other. Should one look at the landscape of the world today, they would clearly see the influence of Europe and China. It is undeniable that these states have enormous potential, and will make a global difference in the near future. However their recently acquired Partnership lacks clarity on both sides despite its paramount importance.

The thesis is a study to answer the question “What is the Sino-EU relationship?” and “How will it affect the changing world?” Using an examination of their histories, perceptions, foreign policies, differences of concepts, and view of each other, this study will analyze the current situation and provide predictions for the coming years.
