Editors: Reimund Seidelmann and Andreas Vasilache

Description: This volume gives a state-of-the art overview of concepts and perspectives of regionalism and interregional cooperation with a particular focus on interregional relations between Asia and Europe. By combining a theoretical and conceptual approach with a strong empirical insight and regional knowledge, scholars from Asia, the Asian-Pacific region and Europe explore the political, economic, security and cultural aspects of regionalization processes and Interregional cooperation.

This discussion of both chances and possible traps in regionalization processes and in interregional cooperation in Asia and Europe shows that interregionalism can provide a basis for good governance in a globalized world.

Description: Every project has a story. The Network of the European Studies Centres in Asia started in 1997 when the Macau Institute of European Studies organized the first meeting gathering several Asian Centres dedicated to European Studies. It was decided that each two years a meeting should take place in Macau. The number of Centres increased to 23 in 2004 and additional new centres are coming. In this meeting it was decided to develop a programme that could increase the links inside the Network and with Centres in European Universities. A core group was formed and a first document was produced. The Nesca project comprised a set of thematic workshops, conferences, a Portal and a Forum.

Once the first draft was prepared it was apparent that it had to be linked to European Research Institutions in order to trigger the dialogue on European key issues. This exchange of knowledge should be seen as a trickling down process and this would be the role of the Portal and Forum. In the Macau meeting in 2004, the possibility of the Nesca project becoming a EU-Nesca project, insert in the 6 th Framework Programme of the DG Research was worked out and Prof. Reimund Seidelmann from Giessen and Brussels Universities was appointed to analyze the possibilities of setting up a candidature. Two Consortiums were formally established. One gathering European Institutions – University of Giessen, University of Warwick, Sciences Politiques-Paris, Free University of Brussels. Another one, gathering Asia Centres – Macau Institute of European Studies, Korea University, Chulalungkor n University, Chistchurch University and Fudan University in Shanghai.
A final programme was approved by all members of the two Consortiums and Reimund Seidelmann was asked to formalize the application and to cope with all the requisites necessary for the acceptance and selection of a programme insert in the philosophy of the 6th Framework Programme.

Description: The EU-NESCA Project included two workshops to be set up along the first year of the programme. The first one, has as its main topic the EU foreign and security policies; the second one, would focus the question of European Identity and Diversity.

This first book contains the papers presented and discussed in the first workshop that took place in May 2006
(4th to 6th) in Macau. The topic is by itself crucial in our time, both in political research terms or on our day to day life. Europe has a role to play in global context. However it is necessary to discuss if the European Union has the policies and means to be a real player. The analysis of the limits of European negotiations and actions is a key issue in the arena of multipolar unbalances and conflicts. In addition the analysis of the possibilities and scenarios for a widen and deepen global responsibility of the EU is equal relevance. This was the purpose of the seminar and we hope that this book can contribute to a better understanding of the need for progress on European strategies and policies and how they can be implemented on a global basis.
