The Association of South East Asian Nations (ASEAN) aims to promote the growth of the member nations in the economic, social, and cultural spheres.

Priya is a final year Development Studies Major at IIT-Madras, with a particular interest in Political Theory and International Relations. To her, Model UN has always been a way to hone the skills she’ll need in the career in politics she envisions, and to put to test the knowledge she tends to pick up while reading whatever she can lay hands on. While Human Rights and Regional Bodies have always been her councils of choice, ASEAN presents what promises to be a unique and interesting challenge. Quick-witted, with talent in abundance and lethal with her pen and otherwise, Priya Subramanian runs her councils (and her life) by the wise words of Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord- "Are you a serious person? Because I only have time for people who are". For more Madam Secretary references, well-honed wit and sarcasm, and what promises to be fantastic debate, look no further than ASEAN.
