The rise of Asia has a far-reaching impact on the world, and the Central and Eastern European region is no exception. Growing economic, political and cultural ties with Asia, as well as increasing attention from major Asian countries create new circumstances for the region. Central and Eastern Europe, which in the Western-centric world has long been a semi-periphery, has suddenly found itself in Eurasia, which provides an exceptional opportunity to redefine the role of the region. In addition to politics and the economy, the panel intends to focus on historical, cultural, intellectual and identity issues to understand the complex effects of the rise of Asia on Central and Eastern Europe and its wider relationship with its traditional neighbours such as Western Europe and Russia.
