Publication synopsis China and Europe have few political values in common, even though they employ the same value-laden concepts in their political discourse. Chinese-European disputes over issues from Tibet to human rights, from market economy status to the arms embargo, from Africa to Iran are reflected, to a large extent, in their perceptual gaps on such political concepts as sovereignty, human rights, strategic partnership, multilateralism, and global governance. The authors analyze how differently China and Europe interpret the same political concepts, to examine what implications of their conceptual gaps may have on China-EU relations, and thus to discover how best to manage and bridge them. A multidimensional exploration of how differently China and Europe interpret the same political concepts and how their conceptual gaps impact on the China-EU relations.
