Schools Outreach


Past Schools Outreach Programme

List of topics that was offered:
- EU 101: an introduction to the European Union
- The EU and ASEAN (the role of regional organisations / regional integration versus globalisation)
- The EU’s external relations and foreign policy
- The EU as a global actor

The EU Centre had offered Schools Outreach Programme conducted by our academic staff, associates and experts. Talks and lectures had been given at various pre-tertiary schools in Singapore on an ad hoc basis.

In 2010, the EU Centre began a more concerted effort to engage schools and junior colleges. We did a quick survey of all Junior Colleges (JCs) and Integrated Programme (IP) schools and found that the level of interest on learning more about the EU was encouraging. Hence, we have followed up systematically with JCs and IP schools and lined up a series of lectures, seminars for over 20 colleges and schools, involving the Centre’s Director, Senior Fellow, Research Associate and the Associate Fellows.

Our outreach to schools, junior colleges and polytechnics had covered topics ranging from the historical background leading to the European integration project to the present Single Market, Common Foreign and Security Policy, to challenges faced by the EU, and a prognosis of the future.
