Three Reasons for a Strong ASEAN
Our world is changing, becoming more complex, more connected and more contested. If global governance is out of reach, does regional integration provide an answer to the new world (dis)order? How can we strategically address political and economic issues, as well as promote human rights? The European Union – globally at the forefront of integration – offers some helpful insights for ASEAN.

A SEMINAR & DIALOGUE ON
ASEAN and the European Union
Lessons Ignored, Lessons Learned
More than ever, States compete today with non-state actors for influence and agenda-setting. People request legitimate governance from their leaders. Businesses want legal certainty. Conflict patterns change. Global mutual interdependence connects communities, but our problems are less and less predictable. An academic dialogue attempts to clarify some issues.
