The Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence, Asia-Europe Institute, University of Malaya kicks off with its third event of 2019 by the organising the annual Comparative Regionalism Workshop 2019: Bridging Regional Knowledge. The workshop is part of the Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence grant awarded by the Erasmus+ Programme in 2017 to the Asia-Europe Institute.
Regionalism has been one of the important driving forces for Asia and Europe alike, propelling the countries of these two regions to sync their policies and pool their resources at regional and sub-regional levels. While Europe has achieved remarkable success and to certain extent facing some changes at the moment, in Asia, both the success and challenges are being looked upon in varying degrees, with Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) emerging as a leader in regional cooperation in Asia. With the objective to learn from each other, the European Union, ASEAN, and other regional bodies have also begun to engage, establish and enhance dialogue mechanisms. This workshop aims to bridge regional knowledge on comparative regionalism.
The Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence, Asia-Europe Institute are proud to once again hosts Dr. Paul Gillespie who is an expert instructor in field of comparative regionalism from University College Dublin for the second year in a row to share his perspective on comparative regionalism. Dr. Rahul Mishra, senior lecturer of AEI will be the co-facilitator.
This confluence of experts from the Asia-Europe Institute, University of Malaya, and elsewhere, will bring forth their research projects. The workshop wishes to pursue this expansion and present new insights on comparative regionalism in Europe and Asia.
