5th Asia-Europe Roundtable: Preparatory Meeting

Project Period: Contact: Department: Programme: Theme:
12 Jun 06 - 13 Jun 06 Asia-Europe Foundation Governance & Economy Department Asia-Europe Roundtable on Conflict Management Governance & Human Rights



Eleven experts from ASEM countries met to discuss the question: “How do regional communities in Europe and East Asia help to build/rebuild democracy in post-conflict countries?” This had been suggested as a possible topic for the 5th Asia-Europe Roundtable in 2007.

The Preparatory Meeting was held over two days, and participants focused on defining the terms relevant to the topic and identifying the different actors and steps involved in building peace and democracy. Topics discussed included:

- The process of peace-building

- Reconstructing institutions after armed conflict has ended

- The involvement of regional institutions

- Official Development Aid (ODA)

- The role of the international NGOs and the local community in this process

The meeting resulted in a preliminary agenda with indications of potential speakers and possible participants for the 5th Asia-Europe Roundtable.
