What?

The ASEAN Foundation is organising its Second ASEAN Foundation Model ASEAN Meeting (2nd AFMAM 2016) to coincide with the 28th and 29th ASEAN Summits in Lao PDR. The ASEAN Foundation is the people’s arm of ASEAN and is mandated by the ASEAN Charter to support the Secretary-General of ASEAN in supporting the ASEAN Community building process.

The 2nd AFMAM 2016 promises an authentic experience to understand ASEAN. It is an interactive process where YOU, the students, will role-play a senior official of an ASEAN meeting and simulate how an ASEAN senior official engages in various ASEAN meetings. You will understand how ASEAN as an inter-governmental system works and will learn about the decision-making process to understand how regional agreements and cooperation are cultivated. It will be an interesting and enjoyable experience!
