The book presents nine conference proceedings articles selected from a series of webinars on EU and ASEAN Socio-cultural Cooperation held between July and December 2020. The three webinars, namely, Perspectives on COVID-19: The ‘New Normal’; Regional and Inter-Regional Dimensions in Higher Education Cooperation; and People and Culture, were conducted as one of the activities under the Erasmus+ Jean Monnet Centre of Excellence (JMCoE), a 3-year project titled "ASEAN-EU in Dialogue: Learning from Each Other” awarded to the AEI in 2017. The goal of the project is to enhance the field of EU and comparative regionalism studies in Malaysia.
The JMCoE work programme for the years 2017-2020 intends to sharpen the focus of AEI on ASEAN-EU Studies and to build domestic capacities both in research and teaching.
