Interns introductory meeting at the ASEAN Centre


From February till April MGIMO MA students Ms. Yulia Tomskaya, Mr. Alexander Tumaykin, Mr. Evgeniy Antonov, Mr. Alexander Pichugin and Mr. Alexander Leonov completed an internship at the ASEAN Centre.

On February 17 the interns had the first working meeting with the ASEAN Centre’s Director Dr. Victor Sumsky and other staff members. The internship programme covers research activities (writing analytical commentaries, data collection, research literature review etc.) and administrative work that includes assistance in preparing the Centre’s events and welcoming foreign delegations.

The interns were actively involved in preparing the ASEAN Centre’s Executive Board Meeting that took place on February 18. They indeed got a useful experience in protocol arrangements for such events.
