Why is this interesting for me?
The program explores the collaborative mechanisms within ASEAN and Indo-Pacific countries. Specifically the lectures will address the rise of ASEAN regionalism, the similarities and differences of the geographical, socio-economic and political conditions of the region, the issues and challenges of sustainability in the ASEAN context, and ASEAN regional collaboration and cooperation. This course furnishes the participants with current issues within and beyond the region, as well as addresses the cultural diversity and unity of the region. Besides theoretical knowledge, there will be interactive learning session by academic experts and special meetings with regional stakeholders, followed with field visits and excursions to urban and rural sites (learning the historical and cultural heritage, political and traditional values embedded in the region).
