The Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), comprising the ten member states of Brunei Darussalam, Cambodia, Indonesia, Lao PDR, Malaysia, Myanmar, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand and Vietnam, has undertaken intensified integration into the ASEAN Community through the Rule of Law and Institutions in its 2007 Charter.
This innovative book series evaluates the community-building processes of ASEAN to date and offers a conceptual and policy toolkit for broader Asian thinking and planning of different legal and institutional models of economic and political regional integration in the region. The Asian Western scholars participating in the project were divided up into six separate thematic strands to examine: (1) the general architecture and aspirations of ASEAN; (2) the governance and management of ASEAN: instruments, institutions, monitoring, compliance and dispute resolution; (3) the legal regimes in ASEAN; (4) the ASEAN Economic Community; (5) ASEAN and the World; and (6) the substantive law of ASEAN.
