Summer School of the CMM Project

From 24-28 June 2019 FASoS hosted the European leg of the 3rd Summer School of the CMM Project, an EU-funded Jean Monnet Network devoted to studying the Challenges for Multiculturalism and Multilateralism in Europe and Southeast Asia. Some 30 students from across Asia and Europe were selected for this year’s summer school which started with one week of educational and social activities in Singapore before moving to Maastricht.

Here the participants focused on the challenges facing the European Union and its relations with the Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN), including lectures by Roberta Haar (UCM), Tom van Veen (SBE), Yeo Lay Hwee (EU Centre Singapore), Rahul Mishra (AEI Kuala Lumpur), Evi Fitriani (UI Jakarta) as well as FASoS’ own Anna Herranz Surralles and Thomas Christiansen.

Other highlights included visits to the European Parliament and the House of European History, and guest lectures by the Indonesian Ambassador to The Netherlands and the ASEAN Desk Officer at the European External Action Service. The summer school, organised by Thomas Christiansen, Johan Adriaensen and Cécile Luijten, concluded on Friday with students presenting their group research projects and receiving certificates of attendance during a final “graduation ceremony”.

This was the final event of the project, following previous summer schools held in Kuala Lumpur/Brussels (July 2017) and Brussels/Jakarta (July 2018) which also included work on curriculum development and the organisation of a workshop on multiculturalism in Europe and Asia, leading to an edited volume jointly edited by Yeo Lay Hwee, Eva Nisa and Thomas Christiansen.

The project received funding from the EU’s ERASMUS+ programme.
