The workshop “Managing Regional and Global Governance (MRGG) in Asia: Opportunities and Challenges for the ASEAN Economic Community“ is being jointly developed and implemented as a pilot project by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Internationale Zusammenarbeit (GIZ), the German Development Institute / Deutsches Institut für Entwicklungspolitik (DIE), Bank Indonesia (BI) and DEFINIT. Hereafter, all four organizers of this workshop will be called the organizer.

The workshop is part of the Managing Global Governance (MGG) Program, an initiative of the German Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ), implemented jointly since 2007 by DIE and GIZ. The MGG program is aimed at highly qualified young professionals from currently eight rising powers (Indonesia, Egypt, China, India, Pakistan, Mexico, Brazil, and South Africa), who work in government bodies, policy-oriented think tanks, and research institutions. By offering a qualification for young researchers and government employees the program intends to strengthen partner countries’ capacities in shaping globalization processes as well as supporting them with the implementation of national reform policies to cope with global challenges, such as poverty, and climate change. At the same time the program wants to encourage dialogue and high-level networking between Germany/Europe and the participating countries. The aim is to establish effective, strategic partnerships on equal terms in order to identify possible collective approaches in finding solutions for global challenges.

As a 2011 pilot activity, the planned Managing Regional and Global Governance (MRGG) workshop in Asia is an innovative feature of the MGG Program: (1) it has a particular thematic focus allowing for in-depth dialogue during a limited period of time; (2) it intends to attract young professionals from ASEAN+3 countries, neighboring countries and regional organizations; and (3) it is jointly implemented by GIZ, DIE and Bank Indonesia and DEFINIT as key partner institutions in Indonesia. Building on the new role of rising powers in promoting global governance, the MRGG format reaches out to future Asian leaders to facilitate a better understanding of the interface between regional and global challenges and to interact with partners from Germany/Europe and other MGG regions.

The MRGG workshop will take place in Indonesia as one of the partner countries of the MGG Program. Indonesia has been appointed as the leader of ASEAN 2011. This position will give Indonesia a bigger role in directing the development of ASEAN Community. Therefore, Indonesia has been preparing priorities to be implemented in 2011. Having the MRGG workshop in Indonesia will give the participants opportunities to discuss strategic issues regarding the efforts of Indonesia to realize the ASEAN Economic Community. It is also expected that the participants can contribute concrete policy recommendations for the future of ASEAN Economic Community.

The General Objectives of the Workshop are:

  • To provide a well designed capacity building program to form visionary future leaders in the ASEAN+3 region who can integrate regional and global perspectives and play a bigger role in shaping global and regional governance within their respective organization and work context.
  • To share knowledge and experiences in shaping global governance among young professionals in the ASEAN+3 region
  • To provide an effective platform for discussion on how the ASEAN+3 region can play a greater role in global governance
  • To provide an effective platform for comprehensive dialogue between experts/participants from industrialized countries, rising powers and developing countries in a South-South-North setting
  • To address the challenge of how general values of global governance can be integrated with Asian values and culture
  • To establish a "community of practice" of committed future leaders playing an important role in regional and global governance in ASEAN+3
