On October 18, upon the invitation of the ASEAN Centre Dr. Arnaud Leveau, research fellow, member of the Advisory Board, Asia Centre (France) gave an in-person lecture to MGIMO students on European perspectives of international transformations in Asia. This was an “ASEAN Academic Days in MGIMO 2021” sideline event.

Dr. Leveau thoughts resonated deeply with the auditory, which led to an insightful discussion afterwards. The topics ranged from French-Australian relations after the formation of AUKUS and the rupture of the “submarine deal”; the France’s approach to the Korean Peninsula denuclearization and the formation of Indo-Pacific, as well as the importance of India in the foreign policy of France. The lecturer has also given his remarks on the similarities between the EU and ASEAN – in the way they position themselves on the international arena, and expressed his observations on the development of Russia-France relations.

ASEAN Centre welcomes everyone interested in the current Southeast Asia affairs to join its upcoming lectures part of the educational program “ASEAN Academic Days in MGIMO 2021”.
