The coercive pressure which China is presently indulging in vis-à-vis Australia has not received a lot of public attention. To many it may look like a “China-Australia-only” affair. But Europeans should pay extra attention to what is going on.

This week we had the opportunity to discuss on that matter with three distinguished experts from Australia, France and Germany:
- Kimberley Kitching, Australian Senator for Victoria (Labour Party) and IPAC Co-Chair
- Prof. Heribert Dieter, Stiftung Wissenschaft & Politik
- Arnaud Danjean, MEP (Les Républicains/EPP), Member of EP Delegation with Australia and New Zealand
