Abstract:With the increasing appearance of cyber attacks on European economic, political as well as infrastructure systems in the mid ofthe former decade, the fear of uncertain damages done by Hackerism have ascended between politicians, scientists and economists. Especially the People‟s Republic of China (PRC) appears to be the source of the grand majority of sophisticated and economically motivated „Cybercrime‟. Thus the goal of this paper is to determine the impact of Chinese Cybercrimes on the economic relationship between the European Union (EU) and the PRC. Based on Copeland‟s (1996) theory of Future Trade Expectations (FTEs), the evaluation of the impact of Chinese Cybercrime will follow a Qualitative Comparative Analysis to figure out the mostinfluential determinant on FTEs. The outcome proves that institutional cooperation is the most crucial indicator. Finally, this paper seeks to find out what institutional cooperation implies for Chinese Cybercrime and its effects on the respective partnership and the FTEs at stake.
