CERiM awards UM/FASoS students with Summer School Scholarships

CERiM has awarded three UM students, Jules Bracke (UCM), Aslak Busch and Julia Käfer (FASoS, research master ES), with a scholarship for the summer school in Jakarta and Brussels in July on ‘Challenges to Multiculturalism and Multilateralism’, centred around the issue of managing diversities within societies in Europe and Southeast Asia, and between nations and regional organisations in the international society.

The EU Centre together with its partners in the Jean Monnet Network on Challenges to Multiculturalism and Multilateralism (JMN-CMM) are organising a 2-week Summer Programme in Brussels and Jakarta in July 2018 to introduce students to the European Union (EU) and the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN). The programme will explore how these two regional organisations relate to each other and how they respond to the challenges to the multilateralism in a turbulent world.

The Summer Programme (from 15 – 28 July) will provide an opportunity to learn more about the EU and ASEAN, looking at their institutions, norms, and policies, and examine the roles they play in their respective regions and globally. The first week of the Summer Programme from 15 – 20 July will be held at the Brussels Campus of Maastricht University, and participants will get a chance to discuss with academics and policy experts the key issues confronting the EU. Also included in the programme are visits to the EU institutions and other educational excursions. From Brussels, the students will then travel to Jakarta and spend a week from 22 – 28 July at the Universitas Indonesia’s Depok campus to learn about ASEAN. Participants will also visit the ASEAN Secretariat to have a dialogue with officials from the Secretariat and also members of the Committee of Permanent Representatives to get insights into the working of ASEAN.
