  • Short Description:

This decade is a special moment for ASEAN. During this period, ASEAN member states have agreed to reach higher goals in increasing their regional integration through the ASEAN Community 2015. Not only that, ASEAN’s internal dynamics also include significant changes in both global and regional levels, such as the rise of China as an economic and political global power, and the United States’ attempt to re-establish its strategic presence in East Asia and Southeast Asia.

This book invites us to look into the complexity of ASEAN’s development by analysing three important issues: the influence of changes in international political system, ASEAN democratisation agenda, and the rate of liberalisation and economic integration in the region.
