Welcome to the “EU-Asia Dialogue – Shaping a Common Future for Europe and Asia”!
The “EU-Asia Dialogue”-project aims to enhance exchange and understanding between policy-makers, non-governmental organizations and researchers from Europe and Asia. Seven topics will be discussed and research periods taking a rather practical than theoretical approach will help to formulate policy-recommendations. The project was started in January 2012 and until December 2014 a number of conferences, policy dialogues and briefings will take place in various countries of both continents to disseminate the results of these research studies. Exchange shall be fostered not only between both regions but also the two key target groups – policy-makers and researchers.
The “EU-Asia Dialogue”-project is co-funded by the European Union and the Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung (KAS) of Germany with funds originating from the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation an Development. All activities are implemented by the Konrad-Adenauer Foundation, the East Asian Institute of the National University of Singapore, the European Policy Centre in Brussels and the European Union Centre in Singapore.
On 17 June, 2014, EU-Asia Dialogue will hold a Brussels Briefing on Democracy and Human Rights in Thailand and Indonesia in Brussels, Belgium.
On 18 June, 2014, EU-Asia Dialogue will organize a Policy Panel on Food security in Europe and Asia – Exploring the resource nexus in Brussels, Belgium.
