Teaching EU Studies in the ASEAN ContextIn this 2-day online workshop, we will critically discuss the state of the art of teaching EU studies in the ASEAN context. We will hear the experiences of several practitioners from various countries and take a closer look into some cases studies, which highlight the difficulties of making Southeast Asian students understand the complexities of the decision-making processes in the European Union.
