Rising Asia - Anxious Europe

The Asian Dynamics Initiative (ADI) organized the international conference Rising Asia - Anxious Europe at the University of Copenhagen on 2-3 May 2012.

The conference took place over two days featuring distinguished keynote speakers and paper presentations from an inter-disciplinary group of scholars, focusing on Europe's ‘new' relationship with Asia or the changes in Europe and Asia against the backdrop of such changing relationships.

Rising Asia - Anxious Europe was the fourth in a series of annual conferences initiated by ADI in 2008. ADI is a cross-faculty and interdisciplinary effort to meet the current challenges and demands for better knowledge of and deeper insights into Asian matters.
