Cui Hongjian, director de Estudios Europeos en el Instituto de Estudios Internacionales de China, señala que Pekín quiere “aprender de Europa en materia de justicia social”

A paradox: on the one hand this interview stresses the importance of EU social model as an example for other countries, and in the other hand it underlines the inefficiency of EU as direct human rights promoter in China (fact that one of the things the Chinese value most about Europe is its “soft” policy and its “lack of differences with Chinese authorities as regards human rights  promotion in China” (!) ).

Interesting view of the director of this Chinese think tank linked to the Chinese foreign office, that stresses the fact that EU divisions (in decision making) are good for China (it enables it to have more channels to influence Brussels).
