Model ASEM spin-off editions are the direct outcome from Model ASEM 2014, which was held in conjunction with the 10th ASEM Summit in Milan in October 2014. With the aim of capturing the enthusiasm of students to engage in political simulations at a broader level, the Model ASEM spin-off editions are self-organised by students who aspire to build platforms for young people to exchange perspectives on Asia-Europe collaborations, promote the ASEM process and build long-term relations between the young people of the two continents.

Model ASEM is a 3-day simulation of the actual Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Summit and provides a platform for the participants to sharpen their negotiation, diplomacy and consensus-building skills. The spin-off editions are planned to be conducted in several ASEM countries throughout 2015 and 2016 to build up the momentum for the next large scale Model ASEM conference planned by ASEF in conjunction with the 11th ASEM Summit in 2016 in Mongolia.

The overall objectives of Model ASEM spin-off editions are to:

  • Link students with ASEM Leaders on a national level
  • Facilitate capacity-building and fine-tuning of skills in the fields of negotiation, diplomacy and consensus-building
  • Enhance the understanding of Asia-Europe collaboration and the ASEM process
  • Develop a consensus based Chair’s Statement, which will be presented as a joint document at ASEM11

The project includes 2 main components:

  • Phase 1: Pre-event preparations 
    Selected participants will partake in pre-event research as a groundwork for Model ASEM spin-off edition preparations.
  • Phase 2: 3-day conference 
    Selected participants will partake in Plenary Sessions and Working Groups with a focus on 3 ASEM pillars, namely economic, political and socio-cultural issues. The conference may also entail visits to Diplomatic Missions of other ASEM countries located in the host country to gain in-depth knowledge about the functions of an Embassy, Consulate or High Commission.
