These essays, written by instructors in European Studies, aim at illuminating aspects of the European experience in regional integration by comparing and contrasting with the experiences of ASEAN from the Philippine point of view. The essays cover various topics and themes from data comparison, socio-cultural issues, political integration, institutions, trade relations and integration, demography and population, among others. The papers come from various disciplines—economics, political science, sociology and some areas that highlight the necessary interdisciplinary approach to studying particular regions anywhere in the world.
This book is relevant to students and practitioners who are interested in learning about diplomacy. It moves beyond discussions of historical events and emphasizes real-life application and practice. Diplomacy is not a theoretical fi eld, and as such, students that are interested in it would benefi t from both experiences and simulations that would allow them to practice diplomatic skills. Simulations are particularly important and are used as a training tool for aspiring diplomats in Singapore, the United Kingdom, and the United States but seldom used in the Philippines. This resource can also be used in the training of Philippine diplomats, providing them information and skills that are pertinent to their careers.
