Bilateralism can be examined at two levels: between individual European countries and individual Asian countries, and between individual Asian countries and the EU. All of the EU member states have diplomatic relations with the states normally included in definitions of Asia, except for North Korea, which is not yet recognized by France, and, more importantly, for Taiwan, which, as Czeslaw Tubilewicz shows in Chapter 9, remains an anomaly, recognized only by one west European state (the Vatican) and relying instead on ‘flexible’, economic-based diplomacy to maintain and even slowly upgrade its de facto representation across the EU.

Structure and content of the book This volume consists of two main sections.
