About the Journal:

The Journal of EU-China Economics and Politics (JEUCEP) is a peer-reviewed journal featuring original contributions by leading specialists and scholars on salient political and economic issues concerning EU-China relations and Eurasian synergies. It is the expression of the EU-China Economics and Politics Institute. The Journal is conceived as a transdisciplinary platform of communication, dialogue and debate for scholars, practitioners and trendsetters interested in EU-China Studies and Eurasian dynamics. It welcomes practitioners from the fields of Economics, Political Science, International Relations and other associated disciplines to contribute to a lively scholarly debate centering on the past, present and future of EU-China relations. In particular, it aims at serving as compass for intellectual voyagers exploring possibilities on the 21st Century New Silk Road. The Eurasian region, from the Atlantic to the Pacific, from the Mediterranean to the Indian Ocean is on the verge of a ‘great economic and civilizational revolution’ which is going to spread along the New Silk Road trade and cultural arteries. The Journal encourages forward-thinking scholars and policy-makers, skilled navigators of economic and financial currents, expert travelers of civilizational pathways, merchants of innovative ideas and harbingers of peace and prosperity to submit thoroughly-researched, beautifully-written and scholarly-enhanced unsolicited papers for consideration.

JEUCEP is indexed and catalogued in the Directory of Open Access Journals, EBSCOhost, the online Bibliography of Asian Studies of the Association of Asian Studies, and Open J-Gate.
