Le pivot européen vers l'Asie : un nouvel équilibre à trouver ?

Abstract : The year 2017 poses a number of existential dilemmas for Europe. On the regional front, several key domestic elections will likely determine the future direction of the European Union. The international situation also presents many equally significant challenges. As the Asia Pacific region spearheads the global recovery from the 2008 financial crisis, the European pivot to Asia stands poised to accelerate. A series of economic and security issues throughout the region present both opportunities and challenges for European member states; items on the agenda include persistent trade imbalances, climate change, maritime security and the law of the sea. With the rise in authoritarian governance worldwide and the push for regime neutrality within international institutions, how should the EU and its democratic member states respond to a potentially volatile realignment of geopolitics in Asia? China’s continuing economic rise, coupled with its uneven human rights record and territorial push into the South China Sea, poses a particular challenge for the European Union. This paper will examine the advantages and disadvantages of a heightened interdependence with Asian markets, as well as the security dimension of Europe’s presence in the region, including its longstanding commitment to free navigation and fair allocation of resources according to international law.
