  Abstract:
   
  At the time when the euro area suffers from the debt crisis and the European economy has been sluggish for years, a question has attracted people’s attention – will the European Union (EU) weather the crisis and get even stronger afterwards or decline to be a secondary power in the world? Due to EU’s importance in the world economy, politics and security, any significant change of EU’s international status, influence or behavior pattern will not only affect the direction of future European integration and reflect the trend of the changing international landscape, but have a great impact on the external and even internal environment of China’s development in the future.
  This report observes the changes of EU’s international status and influence from the following aspects: first, EU's changing status in the world economy; second, the adjustments of EU foreign policy and behavior pattern; third, EU's changing status in major-power relationships; fourth, the adjustments of EU's global governance strategy. To acquire a rational judgment on EU’s development trend and the orientation of its internal and external policies, the authors have conducted an in-depth analysis on the causes, ways and implications of the observed changes.
