In the theme of how to build a global legal order between China and Europe, Judge Brichambaut has analyzed the unique legal experiment developed by Europe over the past 70 years and the multidimensional globalization process with active participation between China and Europe.

Subsequently, Judge Brichambaut elaborated on the legal system, economic market, security issues and other aspects of globalization and multilateral relations. He pointed out that environmental issues and climate change are the latest global challenges and that China and Europe are likely to coincide in terms of Africa's development, global migration and epidemics. It is hoped that China and Europe will work together to develop the legal tools needed to manage the global public domain and to cooperate closely to meet the major challenges and meet the challenges ahead.

In the end, Judge Brichambaut expressed his views on China-EU cooperation in the development of a global legal order.
