During her university studies, Eva wrote several essays on China’s international relations, focusing on the state’s changing role in international politics and how this expresses itself in its activities within regional organisations. She is furthermore interested in the Sino-Russian relationship and the two countries’ cooperation in the framework of the Shanghai Cooperation Organisation. Her master’s thesis concerned China’s reaction to the Ukraine crisis in 2014.
