Collectively accounting for over 1.2 billion people and in excess of 20 per cent of global GDP, the EU and ASEAN are not only the world’s most advanced and successful regional organisations, but they also carry a huge amount of economic and political influence. Located at opposite poles of the Eurasian landmass, these bastions of multilateralism have benefitted significantly from the liberal, rules-based trading system. As this trading system comes increasingly under fire however, how can the strategic relationship between the EU and ASEAN function to reinforce its normative foundations?

This event organized between EIAS and the ASEAN Brussels Committee (ABC) will look at both the political and economic relations between these great regional actors, and will ask how this relationship can develop and innovate, and ultimately serve a stable and sustainable future?
