Policy Paper No. 5 “Urban ASEAN”

Wie nutzt ASEAN die urbane Dimension für stärkere regionale Zusammenarbeit? In den ASEAN-Mitgliedsstaaten findet Urbanisierung in beeindruckenden Größenordnungen statt. Dieses Phänomen geht Hand in Hand mit einem starken Wirtschafts- und Bevölkerungswachstum, birgt jedoch gleichzeitig soziale, wirtschaftliche und ökologische Herausforderungen.

Policy Paper No. 4 “Countering Violent Extremism and Terrorism in Asia and Europe”

In this policy briefing, Patrick Rueppel (Senior Program Manager for Foreign and Security Policy, Geopolitics) discusses recent developments concerning terrorism and violent extremism in Asia and Europe. Terrorist cells posed a severe threat to home security, even before the emergence of Daesh. However, as a consequence of Asian and European citizens joining Daesh, terrorists have been able to establish networks among fighters from both regions. It has thus become imperative that governments from Asia and Europe enhance their collaboration and coordination in all dimensions of counter-terrorism efforts. The policy paper gives recommendations for the way forward. Read more...

This policy briefing provides a summary of an expert conference that addressed recent developments regarding refugees and temporary migrants, immediate actions to foster integration and long-term strategies.

Policy Briefing No. 1 “Fostering Europe-Asia Cooperation in Addressing Irregular Migration and Refugee Movements”

In this policy briefing, Patrick Rueppel (Program Manager for Foreign and Security Policy, Geopolitics) provides insights into the refugee as well as migration situation in both regions. Despite many similarities and direct linkages between Asia and Europe, collaboration on refugees and migration has been limited.
