THE EUROPEAN UNION, SHANGHAI COOPERATION ORGANISATION: PERSPECTIVES ON PARTNERSHIP IN THE FACE OF GLOBAL CHALLENGES
Languages of publication
This paper aims to examine the prospects for cooperation between the European Union (EU) and the Shanghai Cooperation Organization (SCO) in combating global threats. A short description of the Shanghai grouping is followed by the analysis of the reasons for the organization’s relative little importance at the global level. The paper endeavours to identify the reasons for the lack of bilateral relations between the EU and the SCO. It focuses on China and Russia as the SCO’s leading member states. The main part of the article examines the role played by the EU, China and Russia in the efforts to counter environmental threats as well as the adverse effects of uncontrolled industrialization. Finally, it identifies the potential negative and positive factors determining the possibility of both organizations’ future cooperation in addressing global threats.
