Asia in the Eyes of Europe is a research project designed to map the perceptions of ‘Asia’ in European media and among citizens. The project involves public opinion surveys, elite interviews and media analysis.
The 3rd and final methodology workshop brought together the project researchers to present and discuss their final research findings. In addition, the workshop offered a chance to critique the initial drafts of the country chapters to be included in the final project publication, due for release in June 2012.
The meeting included a public panel to showcase some of the initial findings and their impact on improving Asia-Europe relations. Hosted by the House of the European Union, the panel focused on the challenges and opportunities facing the EU in its external relations with Asia.
The research was completed in 2012 and the findings are available in the new publication, “Asia in the Eyes of Europe – Images of a Rising Giant”.
