The research group ‘Asian Perceptions of the EU’ aims to understand the gap between the self-perception of the EU as a security actor and the perceptions of the targeted “recipients” in Asia, particularly in India and China.

The research team is based at the Free University Berlin’s Otto-Suhr-Institute for Political Science. Visit
This interdisciplinary research project based at the Zentrum Moderner Orient aims to understand the the ways people in Africa and the Middle East engage the idea of “Europe” as a metonymy of possibilities, both in its affirmative and in its critical forms. The focus of the project is therefore not so much on the representations people make of Europe as it is on the way people are compelled to compare themselves with metropolitan standards. Visit

The project is conducted at the Johann Wolfgang Goethe-Universität Frankfurt am Main. Visit
