Based on the discussions from the 8th Asia Europe Roundtable (23-25 May 2011), The Future of an Asia-Europe Strategic Partnership in Conflict Transformation examines policy decisions that are required now, to ensure sustainable bi-regional cooperation on peace and security in the future. The report explores possible scenarios of future Asia-Europe cooperation with regard to conflict and security issues. This publication:
- Maps some of the different trajectories of Asia-Europe cooperation that could develop in the coming years with regard to conflict and security issues;
- Analyses those global issues (such as migration, new technologies, geopolitical shifts, energy cooperation) that will have an impact on regional coordination of conflict management activities;
- Presents multi-sectoral recommendations by which Asia-Europe conflict transformation strategies can be strengthened and better coordinated.
The roundtable and report were organised by the Asia-Europe Foundation, Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, and the Singapore Institute of International Affairs, supported by the Europe-Asia policy forum and financed by the European Union.
