Abstract:Over the years, two essential arguments have evolved around the EU‘s external identity. The first one representing Europe as a ‗Normative Power‘ and the second one corresponding to the claim that the EU‘s external agenda is driven by strategic interests. In the case of EU-China relations, the EU claims to pursue likewise a strategic agenda and a normative agenda. By focusing on the EU‘s campaign against the death penalty this will be tested via means of a document analysis. Contrary to the expectation that the EU balances its strategic interest versus its goal to abolish the death penalty in China, the conclusion will be that its normative interest is being overshadowed by the EU‘s pursuit of strategic relations with China.
