About the Book
The European Union is the most successful regional organisation in the world. ASEAN is the most successful regional organisation in Asia. The story of the important and multi-faceted relationship between these two organisations has seldom been told. This is the first book about the relationship, written from the ASEAN perspective. It contains essays from all the ten ASEAN countries. The book describes the many areas in which ASEAN and the EU have convergent interests and, the few areas in which they have divergent views. The book also looks to the future and suggests some possible areas of cooperation. The Foreword is written by Singapore's Foreign Minister, Dr Vivian Balakrishnan. The book readership include academics, scholars, diplomats and civil society interested in EU-ASEAN relationship.
The book will be available in bookshops from 5 October 2020 island-wide. Check this out (https://doi.org/10.1142/11905) for pre-order promotion and online order discount.
