ASC is a two-year project, jointly organised and hosted by Konrad-Adenauer-Stiftung’s Regional Programme Political Dialogue Asia in Singapore and the Diplomatic Academy of Vietnam in Hanoi.
The project’s raison d’être is to discuss the future of security cooperation within the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) against the backdrop of ASEAN inaction in confronting most recent security-relevant challenges. A perceived and real reluctance by ASEAN to meaningfully engage in the management of security challenges, such as the Rohingya situation, the South China Sea disputes, and the management of water resources, increasingly risks ASEAN security irrelevance; in the eyes of ASEAN’s partners as well as its own members. Over several conferences, ASEAN Security Connectivity Working Group discussed relevant issues and devised options for the medium-term future of cooperation within the ASEAN Political-Security Community.
With this event, the organisers will provide a glimpse into their approach and introduce some of their key findings, arguments, and policy recommendations. We have, therefore, the great honour to have three outstanding experts in their respective field presenting their case studies.
Afterwards, we have the pleasure of inviting you to a buffet networking lunch reception on the premises of the CPG, where there will be ample opportunity to discuss the issue with the experts in further detail and also get your hand on a copy of the book “ASEAN Security Connectivity: Regional Solutions to Regional Security Challenges” FREE OF CHARGE.
