Mission Statement

1. Security Connectivity between Europe and Asia

 

2019 will mark a critical and transitional year for Europe. With new leadership upon European Parliament election, there could be some instability and uncertainty, but could also yield positive dynamics. Connecting Europe and Asia from security point of view will examine in detail these transformations and try to figure out ways ahead. In particular, Belt and Road Initiative and Indo-Pacific Strategy are to be analysed with comparative perspective. In this end, the case of maritime security will furnish a focal locus whether the EU might engage in Asian security matters, without appearing to take sides. That would be contribution to the promotion of a rules-based order and cooperative security initiatives.

 

 

Main Themes


  • - New EU Leadership and EU-East Asia Relations
  • - Chinese BRI and Indo-Pacific Strategy
  • - Cooperation between Europe and Asia on Maritime Security

 

 

 

2. Economic and Trade Connectivity

 

<Trade for All Strategy> in 2015 marked a quantum shift of economic concerns in Europe. More responsible trade and investment are underlined. However, with the advent of Trump Administration, things are changed drastically, causing issues such as illiberal international order, protectionism and trade war among states. In this part, FTA with East Asian partners are to be analysed and eventually to see if CJK FTA might be attainable with long term perspective. Economic and Trade connectivity will explore the possibility of further liberalisation through trade deals between Europe and Asia.

 

 

Main Themes


  • - Trade for all Strategy and Protectionism
  • - EU-Korea FTA, EU-Japan EPA and Further Development
  • - CJK FTA and EU-East Asia Economic Relations

 

 

3. Connecting Europe to Asia in Mobility

 

Prospective relations among nations are guaranteed only with mobility of younger generation in respective countries. Europe has been vanguard in this realm and Erasmus generation contributed further to the very process of European integration. While in Asia, a new mobility scheme called Campus Asia among China, Japan and Korea was introduced in 2012. Unfortunately, however, due to historical and territorial disputes, dynamics for implementation stalled. This section will explore a kind of exit strategy for this troubled situation in comparison with European experience. In the end, main focus will be centered on inbound mobility from Europe to Asian countries to make balance with outbound from Asia to Europe.

 

 

Main Themes


  • - Erasmus + and European Mobility
  • - Mobility in East Asia: The Case of Campus Asia
  • - Inter-regional Cooperation on Mobility between Europe and Asia
