The final year of the EU-China NGO Twinning Program revealed the great variety of our dialogue program for Chinese and European civil society organizations – its challenges and creative outcomes but also its limitations. The multitude of different topics twinning program participants engaged in proved once more that constructive cooperation between China and Europe is still possible in these times of heightened political polarization in the world.

In 2019 the Stiftung Asienhaus supported by the Robert Bosch Stiftung and Stiftung Mercator realized its seventh and final round of the EU-China NGO Twinning exchange program, laying the foundation for a vital and sustainable connection between China’s and Europe’s NGOs. Chinese and European NGOs working on very diverse topics of civil society took part in the mutual exchange which foresaw a several week long work-and-study stage at the partner organization in the respective other region.
