This article examine the changing executive narratives and conceptions of the role of the European Parliament (EP) and the National People’s Congress (NPC) in the EU-China Strategic Partnership. This is carried out through an analysis of the European Commission’s and the Chinese Government’s policy documents that have structured this partnership since its establishment in 2003. By doing so, the article investigates the oft-neglected political component of the people-to-people exchanges advocated by the EU-China 2020 Strategic Agenda for Cooperation.
