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 March 2015 more than 30 conferences, policy dialogues and briefings took 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 10 February and 5-6 March, 2015, the two concluding conferences of the EU-Asia Dialogue discussing areas for future EU-Asia cooperation were held in Brussels / Belgium and Singapore respectively.
