Book Launch: China and Europe on the New Silk Road

The global order, based on international governance and multilateral trade mechanisms in the aftermath of the Second World War, is changing rapidly and creating waves of uncertainty. Meanwhile, China has launched its “New Silk Road” (NSR) and is developing its higher education and research systems at speed.

In this book an international and interdisciplinary group of scholars from Europe, China, the USA, Russia, and Australia, who were engaged in a two-year research project, investigate how academic mobility and cooperation is taking shape along the New Silk Road and what difference it will make, if any, in the global higher education landscape.


  • Provides an interdisciplinary and international perspective on one of the most important geopolitical trends of the 21st century
  • Reveals the increasing strategic importance, complexity, and rising tensions in international West-East academic cooperation-
  • An invaluable resource for both scholars and policy makers in higher education
