Journal of ASEAN studies

Association of South East Asian Nations (hereinafter ASEAN), which transformed into a legally-binding community, has become one of the most dynamic regions in the world, not only from economic but also from political and socio-cultural perspectives. The role of ASEAN, with its growing significance in the international affairs, particularly in Asia, is presented with the opportunity to develop comprehensive studies on ASEAN from various actors, approaches, issues, level of analysis and contribution and significance of the studies. Currently, there has been lots of research done to study ASEAN both as a community and organization, or a process. However, in the academic field, few scholarly journals are devoted to the development of ASEAN as a subject of studies.
