CSGSxSkytte Institute Joint Lecture Series III - EU and ASEAN: Diverging Road of Regional Integration

The European Union (EU) and Association of Southeast Asian States (ASEAN) have arguably been the two of the most sustainable regional integration in modern history. While the two organizations are often subject to comparison, they have grown in different directions, reflecting the nature of cohesion between their member states. While the EU is widely regarded as a model of regionalism, the study of cross-regional comparison has pointed out the need to diversify perspectives in understanding regional integration.

The two organizations have navigated through times of normalcy and crisis. They often have shared similar problems as well. However, the two seemed to react differently to challenges. While the EU championed institutional effectiveness, ASEAN has been praised for its consensus-based mechanisms.

What are the main drivers of regional integration in Europe and Southeast Asia? How different are the EU and ASEAN? How do these differences impact each region's dynamics and their position in the world order?
