Abstract

The COVID-19 pandemic has reached far beyond the immediate public health crisis to significantly affect global political and economic structures. Informed by a political science perspective, the author examines how the virus serves as a magnifying glass, accelerating and making more visible long-term trends in Chinese domestic and foreign politics, and why Chinese studies expertise is crucial for shaping Europe’s response to these trends.
