The EU Centre together with its partners in the Jean Monnet Network on Challenges to Multiculturalism and Multilateralism (JMN-CMM: http://bit.ly/eucentresg-jmncmm) are organizing a 2-week Summer Programme in Singapore and Maastricht in June 2019 to introduce students to the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) and the European Union (EU). The programme will explore how these two regional organisations relate to each other and how ASEAN and the EU confront the challenges to security and prosperity.
The Summer Programme (from 15 – 29 June) will provide an opportunity to learn more about the EU and ASEAN, looking at their institutions, norms, and policies, and examine the roles they play in their respective regions and globally. The first week of the Summer Programme from 15 – 21 June will be held at the National University of Singapore. Participants will get to learn about ASEAN, go on educational and cultural excursions, and have dialogue with ASEAN ambassadors and experts. From Singapore, participants will then travel to Maastricht and spend a week from 23 – 28 June at the Maastricht University to discuss with academics and policy experts the key issues confronting the EU. Also included in the programme are visits to the EU institutions and other cultural excursions.
WHO SHOULD ATTEND?
We welcome applications from all matriculated students (advanced undergrads – 3rd or 4th year students, and Master’s students) from universities from ASEAN and EU member states.
Participation in the Summer Programme is FREE for all accepted applicants and includes the visit programmes and excursions, accommodation and local transport. This is possible thanks to funding by the European Union’s Erasmus+/Jean Monnet Programme (with contributions from the National University of Singapore, Nanyang Technological University and Singapore Management University).
Participants are responsible for arranging their own travel to and from Singapore and Maastricht.
