Intra-state Conflicts – Can the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Play A Role?
2012 (English)Conference paper (Other academic)
The paper examines if the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) can play a role in the context of intra-state conflicts and processes of political regime change in the Southeast Asian Region. The paper first outlines the ASEAN framework for regional collaboration with a focus on the conflict management dimension and on the principles guiding inter-state behaviour. The paper then analyses the possible role that ASEAN can assume to act in the intra-state context within the limits set for its actions by its member states. The paper also discusses how strictly the principles adopted and professed by ASEAN and its member states have been applied in practice. The paper is concluded by a summary of the main findings and a broader discussion.
