About ASEAN in Today's World (AsTW)
AsTW was launched in March 2009 in Thailand. From 2009 to 2011, it was co-organized by Kyushu University (Japan) and Mahidol University (Thailand). Kyushu University worked with Ateneo de Manila University (the Philippines) and hosted AsTW in the Philippines from 2012 to 2014. From 2015 to 2017, AsTW was held at Vietnam National University, Hanoi (Vietnam). The AsTW sessions were held at the University of Malaya (Malaysia) from 2018 to 2020. In 2021 and 2022, the program was conducted online due to COVID-19 and was jointly hosted by Kyushu University and Mahidol University. In 2023, it was held on the Salaya Campus of Mahidol University, and in 2024, it will once again be held at Mahidol University.

Message from Secretary-General of ASEAN
In line with this, programmes such as ‘ASEAN in Today’s World’ are welcomed in strengthening ASEAN awareness among the peoples of the region, as well as in promoting a culture of peace and mutual understanding. To this end, I commend the ‘ASEAN in Today’s World’ initiative for enabling the region’s young people to get to know each other better while developing the knowledge and life skills they need to successfully navigate today’s world and the future.
The ASEAN Secretariat remains committed in promoting positive initiatives such as this, with a view towards increasing people-to-people interactions and mobility within and outside the ASEAN region.
Secretary –General of ASEAN
Structure of AsTW:
The Multiculturalism course gives AsTW its distinction as a rigorous introduction to selected ASEAN issues that increasingly affect global and regional “ASEAN+3” relations.
Students will broaden their knowledge and gain a deeper understanding of ASEAN and “ASEAN+3” cooperation through the AS courses. A valuable part of the program is the opportunity to approach ASEAN and East Asia topics from different perspectives.
To complete the AsTW program, students must enroll in both courses for credit and participate in all essential events. Students who meet all AsTW requirements will be awarded a certificate issued jointly by Kyushu University and the co-hosting university.
