Abstract : Multilateral security dialogues and interactions are fairly new in the Asia-Pacific. The principal embodiment at present is the 18-nation ASEAN Regional Forum (ARF), established in 1993. This paper examines ARF's origins, what the forum is about at present (mid-1995), where it may be plausibly headed over the next several years, and with what near and longer term implications for U.S. regional defense policy in the Asia-Pacific.
