Providing a contemporary discussion of ASEAN, this holistic Companion critically examines the organisation’s characteristics, strengths and weaknesses, politics and policies, internal dynamics, and external relations.

This fascinating and informative Companion makes a significant contribution to the literature on ASEAN, providing a comprehensive overview of the organisation and evaluating multidisciplinary perspectives on Southeast Asian regionalism. Featuring novel insights by distinguished experts in the field, chapters examine ASEAN’s perspectives on security, human rights, and community formation, as well as analyse the relationship between ASEAN and other international organisations, including the EU. The book concludes with a discussion of contemporary discourse on ASEAN’s role in the multilateralism of the Indo-Pacific region and beyond.

This stimulating and provocative Companion will be essential reading for students and academics of Asian studies, international relations, political economy, and regulation and governance. It will also be beneficial to policymakers and diplomats with an interest in multilateralism in Asia and Southeast Asian regionalism.
Critical Acclaim
‘The Elgar Companion to ASEAN is perhaps the most comprehensive and relevant overview of ASEAN available today. The Companion provides a truly elaborate and learned account of almost every aspect of ASEAN that can be considered relevant in determining its shape in the modern era. It looks at issues of theory, identity, institution-building, democracy and governance, civil society, and security and economic development from within ASEAN. From outside of ASEAN, it examines the organization’s relationship with the powerful external actors and institutions that influence ASEAN’s development and mission. All of the chapters are well-written and argued and display an impressive depth of knowledge and analysis. Overall, this is one of the best and most rewarding overviews of ASEAN that I have encountered.’
