Post by Admin on Sat 28 Feb 2009, 03:31


Advancing mutual understanding and collaboration among the people of Asia and Europe.

What We Do
The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) advances mutual understanding and collaboration between the people of Asia and Europe through intellectual, cultural, and people-to-people exchanges.

ASEF's Goals
Our goal is the establishment of permanent bi-regional networks focused on areas and issues that help to strengthen Asia-Europe relations. ASEF acts as the civil society outreach of ASEM (Asia-Europe Meeting) and interface between civil society and ASEM governments, and consequently contributes to the ASEM process by generating unique recommendations for officials’ consideration.

ASEM Countries
Initially consisting of fifteen EU member states, ten ASEAN member states plus China, Japan, Korea and European Commission, ASEM saw its first enlargement at its 5th Summit in 2004, where both new EU and ASEAN member states became part of the process: Cambodia, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Estonia, Hungary, Laos, Latvia, Lithuania, Malta, Myanmar, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia. The subsequent round of ASEM enlargement in 2007 brought in India, Pakistan, Mongolia, Romania, Bulgaria and the ASEAN Secretariat, increasing the grouping into a total of forty-five partners.

Our Exchanges
These include:
* conferences
* lecture tours
* workshops
* seminars and
* the use of web-based platforms.

ASEF's Activities
We cover these thematic areas:
* Arts Development
* Artistic Practices & Cultural Policy
* Education & Academic Co-operation
* Environment & Sustainable Development
* Human Rights & Governance
* Intercultural Dialogue
* International Relations
* Media & Society and
* Youth

Programmes
ASEF has over 30 programmes offering covering a diverse range of subjects and topics. Each programme spins-off into one or more projects or is a project in its own right. Select a programme from the list below to find out more about that programme and the projects under that programme.

Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) Empty [EXPIRED] Migration and Multi-Cultural Societies, ASEF University, Republic of Korea, 29 Jun-11 Jul 2009

Post by Admin on Sat 28 Feb 2009, 04:15

The Asia-Europe Foundation and the Woosuk University are pleased to invite qualified young individuals from Asia and Europe to participate in the fifteenth edition of the ASEF University, to be held from 29 June to 11 July 2009 in the Republic of Korea.

This year's ASEF University will aim to compare, connect and contrast the impacts of the globalisation process on Migration and Multi-Cultural Societies. The programme will include, among others, discussions on migration from a multi-perspective approach. There is growing recognition that migration is an essential and inevitable component of a State's economic and social life, and that orderly and proper migration management can benefit both individuals and societies. The multiple and complex dimensions of migration issues will be included.

The ASEF University is open to university students from the 43 ASEM countries. Participants must be 25years old or younger and should preferably be in their final undergraduate year or first graduate year. Successful applicants should have strong academic credentials and established leadership skills through involvement in extra-curricular activities. The programme would generally benefit students of Asian Studies, European Studies, Development Studies, Architecture, Design, Urban Planning and Social Sciences.

Application Deadline: 31 March 2009
