Previous Conferences

“Assessing the External Impact of the Lisbon Treaty within the Asia-Pacific Region”
Chulalongkorn University, Bangkok
February 17th -19th 2011

In February the EUSA Asia Pacific held its annual conference in Bangkok, Thailand, kindly hosted by Chulalongkorn University. The conference was supported by a Jean Monnet grant from the European Commission.
This was a multidisciplinary conference that investigated the impact of the Lisbon Treaty on the external relations of the EU within the Asia Pacific region. The themes of the conference were:

  • The changing EU foreign policy mechanism – the implementation, effectiveness and impact in third countries. What are the tensions, how are norms and values transferred?
  • EU Visibility in the Region - how do the two regions view each other and how should misperceptions be addressed?
  • The EU in the World. What are the connections between the EU as a role model for peaceful integration in Asia? How do the two work together in international fora and in issues of international law?

A preconference graduate workshop was also held at Chulalongkorn University with graduate students from the partner EU Studies associations in the EUSAAP. Students presented their papers and attended academic skills sessions.
