Next to the European Union, Asean is perhaps the most successful regional grouping
in the world. Established 30 years ago, it has transformed a contentious sub-region
of diverse peoples, political and economic systems, religions and cultures into
one of increasing peace and prosperity. This book examines how the regional
organization can meet the challenges of the next 30 years. It seeks to draw
lessons from Asean's past years. It dwells on the strategic goals and critical
pathways for Asean in the years ahead; the challenge of building an even more
peaceful and united Asean community; institutional and social agendas, and its
relations with the wider global political and economic arenas, a better empowered
Asean will undoubtedly assume a larger international role in the next century.
