Description

Product Description Member states of ASEAN - the Association of South-East Asian Nations - have developed a distinctive approach to political and security co-operation. This approach builds on the principles of sovereign equality, non-intervention and non-interference, quiet diplomacy, mutual respect, and the principle of not involving ASEAN in mediating bilateral disputes among the membership. This is a new examination of the origins of ASEAN's diplomatic and security culture. It analyses how over time its key principles are practised and contested as member states respond to regional conflicts as well as challenges posed by the major regional powers, ASEAN's enlargement, and the Asian financial crisis. It also assesses whether ASEAN's diplomatic and security culture is likely to remain salient as the political, economic and security context in which regional leaderships operate undergoes further change. Review 'An important new contribution to the literature on Southeast Asian regionalism [...] the book's main achievement is it's dispassionate, detailed and systematic analysis of the ASEAN Way. [...] The academic community specialising in Southeast Asia?s international relations should welcome the arrival of a new specialist who, if this book is any indication, has the clear potential to make a significant contribution to the field.? Amitav Acharya, Contemporary Southeast Asia
