AIES Director Michael Zinkanell, together with AIES Research Associates Lucas Erlbacher and Nick Nieschalke, attended the autumn conference of the European Think-tank Network on China (ETNC) which took place in Stockholm on 16 and 17 October.

With participating institutions from across Europe, the biannual ETNC conferences are a platform for sharing and discussing current EU-China affairs and keeping track of respective countries’ bilateral China relations.

The Stockholm meeting had a particular focus on Cross-Strait relations, and drawing from his recent visit to Taiwan, Michael Zinkanell shared some firsthand impressions and insights with the other attendees.

The AIES has been an active ETNC member since 2019 and has contributed to various ETNC reports highlighting the Austrian perspective:
