One of the key breakthroughs of the CIL ASEAN Integration Through Law Project was the publication of cutting edge scholarship in the ASEAN Integration Through Law Book Series published by Cambridge University Press.
The editors and authors of the book series—experienced professors and practitioners from Singapore and around the world—have developed the ASEAN Law and Policy Curriculum and Training Programme, with the aim of further establishing the field of ASEAN integration studies in its own right.
Cutting across disciplines of economics, law and political science, the Curriculum and Training Programme comprises modules and syllabi based on the ASEAN Integration Through Law Book Series. This curriculum is freely available online for academics who wish to conduct ASEAN Law and Policy courses at their home institutions.
In addition, CIL will hold the annual ASEAN Law Academy—a series of multidisciplinary courses based on this ASEAN Law and Policy syllabus—for the training of practitioners and professors. The seven-day inaugural ASEAN Law Academy 2018 employs a ‘Training the Doers’ modality and covers the three broad areas of ‘Enhancing the Administration of ASEAN’, ‘The ASEAN Economic Community’, and ‘ASEAN and the World’. The unique feature of the Academy is that instead of static learning, it consists of engaging interactive sessions and employs practice-based learning for greater relevance to the workplace.
The ASEAN Law and Policy Curriculum and Training Programme is part of CIL’s commitment to ASEAN integration at both the academic and practitioner levels.
