Unleash the Negotiator in You

Be an ASEM Young Diplomat

 

WHAT IS #MODELASEM9?

Model ASEM is your first-hand introduction to the exciting world of diplomacy, negotiation and international relations. Being a simulation of the ASEM Foreign Ministers’ Meeting (ASEMFMM), at the Model ASEM you will have the chance to step into the shoes of ASEM Foreign Ministers and along with other students, debate and exchange perspectives on current political and bi-regional issues.

The Model ASEM series organised by ASEF is unique as it takes place in conjunction with official ASEMFMMs and hence provides participants with a golden opportunity to personally interact with ASEM Foreign Minister and government officials.

WHAT DO I GAIN?

Opportunity to interact with ASEM Foreign Ministers and Officials
Participants had the rare chance to meet and interact with ASEM Foreign Ministers and Delegation members as well as with representatives of ASEM Diplomatic Missions and International Organisations.

Diplomacy skills-training
Our renowned think-tank partners and experienced alumni trained participants to master the skills of public speaking, negotiation, team-work, problem solving, policy, advocacy and consensus-building.

Contribute to the ASEM Process
The outcomes of the 9th Model ASEM have contributed to the ASEM process and highlight the important role youth plays in the political dialogue between Asia and Europe.

WHAT WILL #MODELASEM9 OFFER?

The 9th Model ASEM consisted of 3 phases:

Phase 1: Online Preparatory phase (6 weeks)
Prior to playing out their role as a Foreign Minister or Delegation member at the 9th Model ASEM, participants attended attend online crash courses on policy making, webinars on Asia-Europe relations and completed individual and group tasks and research.

Phase 2: Model ASEM Simulation in Madrid, Spain (5 days)

The programme in Spain consisted of plenary sessions and thematic working groups with a focus on the key topics also discussed by the ASEM Foreign Ministers at the ASEMFMM14. As a concrete outcome,  participants developed a consensus-based Chair’s Statement which was presented to the Spanish Ministry of Foreign Affairs, European Union and Cooperation of Spain (MAEUEC). 

In addition, they also participated in practical trainings, and visited Diplomatic Missions of ASEM countries located in Madrid to gain an in-depth knowledge about their operations and functions.

Phase 3: 14th ASEM Foreign Ministers’ Meeting (ASEMFMM14)

Prticipants had the opportunity to interact with their respective Foreign Ministers and government officials and/or of other ASEM countries.

The grand finale: Student participants presented a summary of the project’s outcomes to the ASEM Foreign Ministers at the Opening Ceremony of the ASEMFMM14.
