Palgrave handbook 

The Palgrave Handbook on EU-Asia Relations has just been published. Dr Yeo Lay Hwee, Director of the EU Centre contributed a chapter on “The Asia-Europe Meeting”, providing a succinct account on the founding and development of ASEM, and addressing the various criticisms about the process. The chapter also argued that while ASEM does face a series of challenges, it may not face an early demise if efforts could be made to transform it into a 21st Century networked institution.
