The changing economic and political situation in a global world has shown the need of establishing a close cooperation between specific countries and organizations. In consequence, it had also impact on the need of creating a network of cooperation between Asian countries and the European Union, which is not still clearly visible in a public dialogue. This conference aims to prove that there is need of discussion about the perspectives and opportunities of the EU-Asia cooperation, and to show the challenges regarding this problem. It also goals at showing the necessity of creating an interdisciplinary researches, not only limited to Asian or European studies.  The subject of this conference has not been limited to any particular issue or problem, but rather inviting researchers from different disciplines, yet whose attention is focused on broadly construed Asia and the EU, we hope for creating a space (and a network) for the exchange of ideas, perspectives, and analytical tools.
