A world-class range of academics and practitioners explores the long-neglected and relatively unexplored theme of political relations between the EU and ASEAN in an attempt to escape the economic and security-centered approaches, prevalent in contemporary U.S. debate. In doing so they deal with a selection of topics from an inter-disciplinary perspective touching on different domains, such as security, comparative integration, human rights, energy, or the image of the EU. The four main themes examined are: 'ASEAN and the EU Today', '(Inter-)Regionalism in Danger?', 'Shifting Perceptions', and 'Can the EU be a Model for ASEAN?'. Bridging the gap between academics and practitioners, EU and ASEAN, this volume provides a rare forum for views on the nature of and possible future developments of EU-ASEAN relations.
