â€œAgain an interesting discussion that focused first around inner-European topics and then turned into a discussion about what inspiration Asia could draw from ‘the European Way.’ We had a very good discussion on the EU’s CFSP and I was impressed by the quality of the questions. The research fellows know a great deal about the EU in this field and I was challenged and happy to answer their questions.â€ – speaker May-Britt Stumbaum on her lecture in Bangkok, the fourth city in her tour.
This lecture tour series featured May-Britt Stumbaum, who discussed how Europe built up its model for integration and examined the areas in which this has taken place, as well as the inhibitors for further integration. The audiences in the various cities were especially interested in discussing the extent to which this “model” could be a source of inspiration for Asia.
