Assalamualaikum and greetings from the Centre for ASEAN Regionalism University of Malaya (CARUM). CARUM was formed in January 2015, the year that Malaysia took over the chairmanship of ASEAN, at a time that ASEAN is increasingly emerging as a global leader in regionalism. ASEAN’s internal development – with three new communities expected to be forged at the end of 2015 under Malaysia’s chairmanship – and ASEAN’s leadership of wider regional initiatives are matters attracting international academic interest. CARUM aims to be a national resource for Malaysia, assisting this country’s regional leadership in policy formulation and implementation to meet the need for ASEAN effectiveness, including in wider regional leadership.

A number of Southeast Asian teaching programmes are currently being offered at the University of Malaya, and these parallel the multitude of ongoing projects on ASEAN security, economy and socio-culture by University of Malaya researchers. CARUM functions much more than an additional university research centre: it acts as the central node in a web of University of Malaya institutions/programmes/centres/initiatives. Like ASEAN itself, it would reach out to a range of disciplinary concerns and also geographical areas, helping to give a distinct University of Malaya approach for instance to work on Northeast Asia, Europe or Africa.

CARUM seeks to strategically build networks and partnerships and advance collaborations with researchers on the topic of ASEAN Regionalism within ASEAN and other regions.
