The Europe Asia Economic Forum collaborates with industry leaders and government officials to create a systematic platform to deliver research results that aims at explaining and forecasting on the movements of the driving forces behind policymaking, commerce trends, social movements and challenges in international relations. The EAEF also keeps close communications and active relationships with experts and scholars of various fields across the globe as part of our efforts in cultivating information resources.

When It Comes to Wearing Masks in Public, Do We Want True Multiculturalism or White Cultural Hegemony?

Periphery Diplomacy: Moving to the Center of China’s Foreign Policy
An important event which largely evaded world attention took place in Beijing on October 24–25, 2013.
