Unleash the Negotiator in You, Be an ASEM Young Diplomat

In conjunction with the 14th ASEM Foreign Ministers’ Meeting (ASEMFMM14), the 9th Model ASEM was held on 11-16 December 2019, in Madrid, Spain. Organised by the Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF), the event is recognised as one of the official side events of ASEMFMM14.


Model ASEM is your first-hand introduction to the exciting world of diplomacy, negotiation and international relations. Being a simulation of the ASEM Foreign Ministers’ Meeting (ASEMFMM), at the Model ASEM you will have the chance to step into the shoes of ASEM Foreign Ministers and along with other students, debate and exchange perspectives on current political and bi-regional issues.

The Model ASEM series organised by ASEF is unique as it takes place in conjunction with official ASEMFMMs and hence provides participants with a golden opportunity to personally interact with ASEM Foreign Minister and government officials.
