About the Publication

This report, the first in the ASEAN Studies Centre report series, begins with a brief account of the important points raised during the discussions made at the workshop on The ASEAN Community: Unblocking the Roadblocks, organized by the ASEAN Studies Centre and the Regional Economic Studies Programme on 15 April 2008. The first endeavour in which the new ASEAN Studies Centre was actively involved, the closed-door workshop gathered Southeast Asian experts on ASEAN for what was essentially a brainstorming session on the nature of the ASEAN Community that the association aspires to be, segmented into its three pillars the ASEAN Economic Community, the ASEAN Security Community, and the ASEAN Socio-Cultural Community. The session examined the benefits expected from regional community building for the people of Southeast Asia and the obstacles that lay on the way to its achievement. The workshop suggested certain measures for removing those obstacles. It then discussed the newly signed ASEAN Charter: the significance of its provisions, how it could help build the ASEAN Community, and how it might fall short of doing so. The workshop also heard a short briefing on the aims and functions of the ASEAN Studies Centre and proffered suggestions for it.
