In the new CEASG blog Lise Weerden writes about her participation in the 7th Model Asia-Europe Meeting (ASEM) in Ulaanbaatar. Lise Weerden is Master Student International Relations at the University of Groningen. During her bachelor's and master's she studied for six months in Hong Kong. She has been involved in research on the relationship between China and the Netherlands and worked on various projects of the Asia-Europe Foundation.
