Crisis and Regional Integration

Learning from the crisis: How can Asia and Europe respond to future financial and economic crises?

Financial and economic uncertainties tend to add impetus to greater regional integration, giving collective strength for dealing with crises. The ASEF workshop will use ‘foresight methodologies’ to discuss in-depth the possibilities for such regional integration.

This workshop is co-organised with the Asian Development Bank Institute (ADBI), the Europe-Asia Policy Forum (EUforAsia) the Faculty of Social Science - University of Ljubljana (FSS-UL), and Prospex (a leading future scenario and strategies consultancy).

The workshop will begin with a public briefing "Asia, Europe, and Global Financial Integration" (14th September). It will be followed by a two-day discussion.

The outcomes of the workshop will be consolidated in a project report, which will be conveyed to Finance Ministers of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) governments.
