This book provides a systematic and thorough examination of the Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) process which brings together the fifteen EU member states, the European Commission and ten East and Southeast Asian countries. The author not only traces the actual development of the ASEM process, but also contextualises ASEM within three different international relations theoretical frameworks, as viewed by realists, social constructivists and institutionalists.


'The author gives an assessment of ASEM by sieving the rhetoric from the reality, and by examining its promises and potential.' - Oxfam's Development Resources Review
