Rising Chinese investment in the European countries cause more and more concerns. Some member states of the EU even worry that Chinese firms would control more and more key technologies of local corporations and critical infrastructures in these countries through their Mergers and Acquisitions. Some European governments have established or updated their FDI screening regimes in 2017 and 2018. Meanwhile, an EU-level screening framework came into operation in this year. As a result, Chinese firms will be confronted with more political risks when they choose these member states as their investment destination.

China's approach towards North Korea is often presented as being a paradox: on the one hand China has voted in favour of UN sanctions against the regime in Pyongyang and consistently condemned their development of a nuclear program and testing of missiles; on the other hand China is seen as not fully implementing the sanctions that it is endorsed. How then should or can we understand the policy position and work in harmony with China on this crucial issue? This paper presents the argument that by adopting the lens of the Chinese Peace (He Yin, Kuo) that is focused on development as a means towards peace China's position and approach is less contradictory and may be the last option available in managing the behaviour of the hermit kingdom.

“People in this country have had enough of experts”, Michael Gove famously pronounced. Indeed, the role of experts may seem inherently in tension with the ideal of democracy. But ignorance, in all its forms, is a genuine threat to democracy, and we now face a culture of ignorance. Why the antipathy toward experts, why the flaunting of wilful ignorance, and how can democracy survive them?
