Sebastian Bersick is Lecturer at the National University of Ireland, Cork and European Research Coordinator of the international research project 'Asia in the Eyes of Europe' of the 'Asia-Europe Perception Project'. Paul van der Velde is Chief Executive Officer of the Convention of Asia Scholars (ICAS) and General Editor of the IIAS and ICAS Publications Series published by Amsterdam University Press. The Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) process was designed in 1996 to bring Asia and Europe closer together. The Asia-Europe Meeting: Contributing to a New Global Governance Architecture focuses on the discussions and results of the eighth ASEM Summit that took place in October 2010 in Brussels. It gives a multifaceted picture of Asia-Europe convergences and disparities and helps to understand how these are dealt with through inter-regional political dialogue. Renowned academics and observers of Asia-Europe relations provide analysis and essential insights into the advantages and limitations of contemporary ASEM affairs, their most pertinent issues, and the role of ASEM as a constituent of the developing new global governance architecture. In addition, the book offers a unique insider's perspective of the preparations and negotiations of the Brussels events. The Annex of the book furthermore includes ASEM 8-related primary sources not available in any publicly accessible record. "This book clearly demonstrates that Asia and Europe play a key role in the configuration of a new global governance architecture." W.A.L. Stokhof, Chairman Board of Governors, Asia-Europe Foundation
