Role of ASEAN in Promoting Peace

Taha Husain


ASEAN role in promoting peace in Southeast Asia as regional organization is my dissertation. ASEAN was established during cold war period with six countries and expands its membership to ten countries in post cold war era. Starting with economic integration earlier, ASEAN plays role in peace also. Every one now astonished at ASEAN’s economic progress but overlooks its role in promoting peace not only by development but also by lessening, mitigating or even managing interstate confrontation, conflict, and violence. I use qualitative methodology, specifically qualitative case analysis to accomplish my research monograph. ASEAN way, soft diplomacy, socialization, social interaction, joint economy and industrialization, impressive leadership, non coercive and non intervention policy that all helps ASEAN to minimize their internal conflict. ASEAN regional integration goes through Ernst Haas Leon Lind burg’s neo-functionalism’s way; starting with economic integration and spillover into security issues. ASEAN also promotes both negative and positive peace as John Galtung defined through its regional integration process.
