Model ASEM Spin-off Editions 2018

Project Period: Contact: Department: Programme: Theme:
2018 Education Department Model ASEM Education

11-14 July 2018, Chengdu, China

26-28 October 2018, Bratislava, Slovakia


Model ASEM spin-off editions aim at capturing the enthusiasm of students to engage in political simulations at a broader level. The Model ASEM spin-off editions are self-organised by students and institutions who aspire to build platforms for young people to exchange perspectives on Asia-Europe collaborations, promote the ASEM process and build long-term relations between the young people of the two continents.


Model ASEM is a simulation of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) Foreign Ministers' Meeting when the Foreign Ministers and Representatives of the 53 ASEM Partners convene. It provides a platform for vibrant political debate and negotiation where students have the possibility to experience first-hand Asia-Europe diplomacy. Each participant will be part of an ASEM Delegation and join role-play exercises and practical trainings to enhance her/his diplomacy, consensus-building and public-speaking skills.


  • Link students with ASEM Officials on a national level
  • Facilitate capacity-building and fine-tuning of skills in the fields of negotiation, diplomacy and consensus-building
  • Enhance the understanding of Asia-Europe collaboration and the ASEM process
  • Develop a consensus-based Model ASEM Chair’s Statement


The project includes 2 parts:

Phase 1: Preparatory phase 
Participants will partake in pre-event research as a groundwork for Model ASEM spin-off edition preparations.

Phase 2: Conference
The participants will partake in Plenary Sessions and Thematic Working Groups to discuss topics of economic, political and social, cultural & educational interest. The conference may also entail visits to Diplomatic Missions of other ASEM countries located in the host country to gain in-depth knowledge about the functions of an Embassy, Consulate or High Commission.
