In this episode of The Nordic Asia podcast, Andreas Bøje Forsby joins Duncan McCargo for a conversation on China-Denmark relations. While relations appear to be excellent between China and Denmark, recent development trends, including the US-China great power rivalry and the politicization of China’s influence activities in Denmark, suggest that the relationship is becoming increasingly contested. Andreas Bøje Forsby and Duncan McCargo discuss these and other developments, including how Denmark compares to other European countries’ relations with Beijing.
