Congratulatory Note by Nico Luchsinger, Executive Director of Asia Society Switzerland

“By fostering closer ties between Europe and Asia, and especially among Europe and Asian youth, STEAR’s values are well-aligned with those of Asia Society Switzerland. This journal is a good example of the high quality work that STEAR delivers. I would there once again like to congratulate STEAR, and especially the Editors-in-Chief, associate editors, editors, writers and everyone else on the STEAR team that worked on this journal, on the final result.”

Letter from the Presidents

“Undeniably, relations between many European and many Asian countries have become more fraught since October 2021. Tensions between China and the European Union have for instance been rising. In such a polarised context, it is essential to have a venue for constructive policy discussions. We are glad that this journal provides such a venue.”

It is with this spirit of fostering diversity of opinion, dialogue, and knowledge exchange that informed our article selection for this edition.
