On 2-3 October 2018, the School of Transnational Governance of the European University Institute held its first High Level Policy Dialogue (HLPD) on China. Co-organised with Fudan University’s Fudan Institute of Belt and Road & Global Governance, the HLPD brought together academics, researchers, policy-makers, former politicians, representatives from civil society and the corporate sector from China, Europe and the US in order to engage in a discussion on the Belt and Road Initiative and how it affects transnational governance and the role of Europe. The HLPD was organised around four sessions over a two day period and the deliberations took place in a constructive manner and an open spirit. This policy brief summarises the substance and directions of the discussions which took place under Chatham House rules, highlighting key takeaways from the four sessions.
