The article proposes to consider the COVID-19 global pandemic as new major development for cultural industries and policies and to highlight timely and crucial trends due to the lockdown measures. Thus, it attempts to stimulate the scholarship debate regarding the consequences of the pandemic to the action of global online platforms, as well as to policy and economic aspects of cultural sectors. Taking as case study the audio-visual sector, the article explores whether the US global streaming platforms are the winning players of the lockdown measures and emphasizes the multifaceted strategies developed by US-based platforms in order to strengthen their soft power. Focusing on China and the European Union, the article also argues that the overwhelming action of US-based online platforms triggers the potential emergence of media platform regionalization in the context of COVID-19 pandemic. Finally, it highlights the regulatory challenges and how the new empirical trends are expected to shape the current audio-visual policy framework. The analysis focuses on the period between the beginning of global pandemic in Asia-Pacific in January 2020 and the progressive easing of lockdown measures in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific in July 2020.

Given the global changes created by China's expanding international influence, increasingly intense Sino–American competition and the growing multi‐polarisation of the international political economy, is there any specific place that the European Union can hope to occupy? For tentative answers to this question, this analysis of Chinese economic expansionism aims to highlight the rationale behind the EU's foreign policy action and to explore how this expansionism has impacted on the preservation of the European unity and whether Chinese economic power has undermined integration and triggered disunity within the EU. We look at the period starting in 2013, the year when China launched its ‘New Silk Road’ initiative, right up to the global lockdown due to the COVID‐19 pandemic. [less ▲]

L’article s’intéresse à la place du régionalisme dans les relations internationales et plus particulièrement dans une économie politique internationale marquée par une diffusion croissante du pouvoir doublée d’une mondialisation qui exacerbe la compétition entre grandes puissances. Ainsi, la place et le rôle de l’Union européenne dans la mondialisation sont aujourd’hui bousculés par les actions des puissances internationales, telles que les États-Unis et la Chine, la compétition entre celles-ci et par une remise en question de l’ordre international libéral auquel elle s’identifie. L’article se penche dès lors sur une question majeure : le monde est-il en train de se construire ailleurs qu’en Europe ou l’Union européenne parvient-elle à s’affirmer comme un des pôles principaux de l’ordre international ? Pour tenter d’apporter quelques éléments de réponse à ces questions, l’article fait le choix de se focaliser essentiellement sur les actions entreprises par l’Union en matière de politique commerciale.
