The Extension of ASEAN’s Model of Regional Security

  • Michael Leifer


A recurrent feature of foreign policy is the way in which states seek to adjust to disturbing changes in their strategic environment through making alternative provision for security. One contemporary example of such adjustment on a collective basis has been the establishment of the ASEAN Regional Forum which began its first working session in Bangkok in July 1994. The late Tom Millar entertained a longstanding scholarly interest in the junction between foreign policy and regional security, especially in the Asia-Pacific Region. This article will seek to examine the nature and the merits of the recent and embryonic exercise in the adjustment of foreign policies in that region, with specific reference to the provenance of the security model employed.
