dc.description.abstractSince its inception in 1967, ASEAN has been widely discussed by realists and constructivists alike. Both schools of thought have brought up extensive evidence to support their claims and new literature continues to surface to date. This paper attempts to add on to this debate by examining the dynamics of, ASEAN, the ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF) and ASEAN plus Three (APT) and argues that the realist's interpretation of balance of power more convincingly explains the developments and key decisions made at these institutions. It also suggests that ASEAN needs to move beyond the "ASEAN Way" and start adapting their engagement strategies to better balance the power within and beyond ASEAN in order to stay relevant in the post-Cold War world.en_US
