This issue's main theme is related to China, Chinese-Russian relations, China's approach to Russia's war in Ukraine and the role of China in the wider region. In ‘Common red line? Limits of European engagement in Russia’s war against Ukraine’, Christos Katsioulis analyses how perceptions of conflict and crisis in the European Union have changed since the start of the Russian war against Ukraine. Using FES’ Security Radar data, he shows how the conflict has encouraged fears of war, awareness of developments in Ukraine, questions concerning the broader frame of this war, and the involvement of the respective countries in it.
