|Title:||The EU and ASEAN – in search of a new regional paradigm?||Authors:||Yeo, Lay Hwee||Keywords:||DRNTU::Social sciences||Issue Date:||2013||Source:||Yeo, L. H. (2013). The EU and ASEAN – In Search of a New Regional Paradigm? (EUC Working Paper, No. 15). Singapore: EU Centre.||Series/Report no.:||EUC working paper, No. 15-13||Abstract:||The European Union (EU) has been hailed as the most successful model of regional integration thus far, while the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN), despite its fair share of critics and doomsayers, has been seen as a relatively successful regional organisation in the developing world. However, both seemed to have arrived at a critical juncture in their respective regional projects. Challenged by recent events, internal and external, and faced with increasing uncertainties and complexities, the EU and ASEAN are forced to re-examine the journey they have taken so far and ponder the road ahead. This paper seeks first to provide an overview of the two parallel processes of regionalism in Europe and Southeast Asia by focusing on the developments of the EU and ASEAN, and dissecting both the external forces and internal dynamics that shape the respective regional processes. It then sketches out some of the global trends likely to impact regional developments in Europe and Asia, and questions if the EU and ASEAN would need a new regional approach or paradigm if they are to maintain their salience and relevance as regional actors.||URI:||https://hdl.handle.net/10356/103828
