Abstract: On a theoretical level, how can one explain ASEAN’s role and influence in the Southeast Asian region? And empirically, is ASEAN a provider of regional security? To what extent and through which tools has ASEAN contributed to enhancing regional security and turning conflicting relations into cooperative behavior? What is ASEAN’s role and which instruments does the Association have at its disposal to avoid instability and prevent existing disputes from escalating into wars? Has the change of the world security system into a post-Westphalian system and the emergence of new unpredictable threats somehow conditioned ASEAN’s policies? And consequently, has ASEAN enlarged its security agenda and developed new mechanisms for facing contemporary, non traditional security challenges (NTS), which mostly go beyond the external dimension of security, and pertain to the internal sphere of activity? And finally, to what extent has the Association been able to develop new capabilities to respond to, and better provide, security? [Excerpt from the Introduction]
