Expertise summary

Andreas Fulda is research active in the fields of EU-China relations as well as philanthropy and civil society in Greater China. He is a trained social and political scientist and received his PhD from Free University of Berlin in 2009.

As a consultant he helped design and implement three major capacity building initiatives for Chinese civil society organisations: the Participatory Urban Governance Programme for Migrant Integration (2006-07), the Social Policy Advocacy Coalition for Healthy and Sustainable Communities (2009-11) and the EU-China Civil Society Dialogue Programme on Participatory Public Policy (2011-14).

Advocating critical and constructive European-China engagement, Andreas challenges conventional approaches to EU-China relations primarily focusing on trade and investment and emphasising the importance of government-to-government ties. In stark contrast Dr Fulda's scholarship highlights that a sustainable partnership between Europe and China requires the strengthening of civil society exchanges and collaborative people-to-people relations.

Dr Fulda has made numerous appearances on BBC TV, BBC Radio 4 and Al Jazeera's English speaking channel.
