15th ASEF (Asia-Europe Foundation) University, Wanju, Jeonbuk Province, Republic of Korea
Migration and Multi-Cultural Societies: Opportunities and Challenges
29 June–11 July 2009

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. Formerly known as the ASEF Summer School, the ASEF University is a two-week academic enrichment programme that will enable university students to deepen their insights into contemporary international issues and their significance for Asia and Europe and to forge personal linkages with youth from other ASEM countries.

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.

In this respect, this ASEF University session will feature the ASEM (Asia-Europe Meeting) process* and integration in both regions, whilst emphasising the Asian and European perspectives on those key global developments that are reshaping the social, economic, cultural and symbolic aspects of Migration and Multi-Cultural Societies. Supported by Woosuk University, the 15th ASEF University presents a uniquely enriching experience for university students eager to broaden their views on the process of globalisation in the ASEM process.

The ASEF University is open to university students from the 43 ASEM countries. Participants must be 25 years 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.

The deadline for applications is 31 March 2009.
