ASEM Education Hub Thematic Network On Human Security: Inaugural Conference

Project Period: Contact: Department: Programme: Theme:
07 Nov 07 - 11 Nov 07 Asia-Europe Foundation Education Department ASEF Higher Education Programme (AHEP) Education
Sustainable Development

Jakarta (Indonesia)


The three-day conference revolved on the theme "Energy Security: Visions From Asia And Europe", which gathered 21 representatives from 18 universities and research institutes from 15 ASEM member countries. Participants exchanged views on the policy orientation of various ASEM partners and sought to understand global and regional developments. They also urged for the inclusion of energy security as one of the priorities for national governments -- not only in the economic area, but also in foreign and security policies -- and suggested that energy co-operation should be a priority in multilateral agreements and organisations such as the EU and ASEAN.

Policy approaches made by European and Asian countries to address present-day challenges to energy security were discussed. This included a presentation of various countries' energy security policies, as well as reflections on prospects for regional co-operation on energy security in ASEAN and the relevance of the European Union's policies for Asia.
