Asia Europe Institute

The Asia-Europe Institute (AEI) has successfully established itself as one of Southeast Asia’s leading institutions for postgraduate research and teaching in the area of social sciences. The origins of AEI can be traced back to the idea of establishing closer higher education linkages between Asia and Europe under the provisions of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) initiative in 1996. With a philosophy of enhancing Asia-Europe relations, AEI aims to foster the exchange of students and scholars with a view to develop better understanding of the cultures, history, politics, institutions, economics, business and legal practices of both regions.
