Teaching on ASEAN as an institution, a process and a region, and the holding of ASEAN Studies Programme at postgraduate level in universities and institutions of higher learning in the ASEAN region could help promote greater awareness of ASEAN – an issue that has been plaguing ASEAN as an association ever since its establishment over 41 years ago. A good awareness of ASEAN is a pre-requisite for inculcating a regional identity and solidarity towards achieving the ASEAN Community 2015. Realizing this, currently, several universities in the region are attempting to offer courses and programmes on ASEAN as well as setting up research centres on ASEAN. Within its regional cooperation framework in higher education, ASEAN has established the ASEAN University Network (AUN) Programme aimed at strengthening networking and collaboration among the prime national universities of its Member Countries. The ASEAN Studies Programme was the first prioritized programme of the AUN, and the University of Malaya, through its Asia-Europe Institute (AEI), has undertaken the task of hosting the Programme on behalf of the AUN and ASEAN. The AUN has also decided that the ASEAN Studies Programme be offered at doctoral level by the AEI under the AUN mechanism, tentatively, starting at the end of 2009. This International PhD in ASEAN Studies may be offered as a joint degree between the University of Malaya and another participating university.
